"Fusion ammo for elk"

My buddy is using in 300 win mag, website is vague. Is this a good bullet for elk?

Yes Fusion kills em quick. Blows big holes in em. Ive been shooting the Fusion bullets in 300 win for 10 years now, every Elk and Deer have been 1 shot kills. Also shot Antelope with 243 Fusion. Accurate on the range as well. I posted a couple years back i believe on Fusion bullets. Do a search for it here on MM, if you want. Good luck.

Never killed any elk with in but it has worked great on deer for me. I think you'd be in good shape.

I'm not going to tell you not to use it. I am sure you will be just fine with proper bullet placement.

But it was built specifically for deer.

If you go to this page at the Federal Website and use the menu at the top called "Find the Right Ammunition" you can see if they recommend any Fusion for that caliber for elk.

Just don't tell the elk after it's lungs are turned into soup that the bullet was not good enough cuz it was designed for deer.......be sure to post pics after the hunt.

I can tell you that using Fusion 30.06 on my antelope hunt, I had to tuck the lungs and liver back into the exit hole to be able to take some decent pictures. I don't think that the bullet cares if the ribs are a little thicker on an elk. However, if you use them and they don't do the job be sure to let us know.

Buddy put a cow down last week with his .308 using fusion ammo.

One shot to the neck and it dropped like a rock. He was pretty close though which obviously helps a lot.

Reading where it said it was designed for deer is what made me nervous. That said it says elk on the package! If it was not a 300 win mag I might be a little more leary. This is actually for a cow bison this year, plains bison. I think he should be good.

Those are the only pics of entry holes I have. The Fusion has worked for me so far. Both animals were 200 - 250 ish yard shots.
Good luck on your Hunts.
