This round has been out for a little while now. Found a great video on the testing of it, looks great for our 1:7 barrels.

Looks like a pretty burly load. I'll have to grab some and do some accuracy testing.

Finally got around to shooting some of this. Its really accurate, I think the high BC at .373 is a contributing factor, maybe RC will chime in on that one. This is out of a rifle I just built, 1.25" on a 10 shot group. Not to bad for BUIS at 50 yards. That one inch circle is hard to see at 50 yards. I'm pretty sure those would be dime sized with a scope. For the most part I was just function testing the rifle. The gold dots out performed the MK262's and 69g Eagle eye rounds.

The Gold Dot and the Fusion are the same bullets and I really like them in the 115 Fusion for the 6.8, its a Tyrannosaurus bad ass bullet. For the 5.56 I like the heavy bullets and the 75 grain weight will be better through barriers and big, thick bad guys. If they made it in a 5.56 loading it would be perfect. I've seen what bonded soft points do to two legged predators and this bullet looks like one of the best for terminal performance for this caliber.
