Federal Premium versus Fusion - accuracy

I'm a bit confused on this. I had thought the Fusion was supposed to be the more accurate bullet. When I was in Cabela's the other day, the Fusion cost a bit more than the Premium. However, online I'm seeing the Fusion was 2/3 the price of the Premium.

I'm just getting back to rifles after 30+ years and have a Browning BBR 30-06. It was recommended by a (highly) competitive shooter that the Federal 30-06 150gr Nosler BT would be a great factory bullet to use (considering accuracy as primary). But this bullet is $36 a box.

The 165gr Fusion-BT and 150gr Fusion (I don't think it's a boat-tail) are $24 a box. I'm all for a buy two get one free situation. But will the Fusions perform at least the same?

Thanks in advance,

PS. I don't (yet) know that twist rate on my rifle.
