My 2 cents

Buy the cheap Federal (some are blue box and some are red box) and shoot them through your gun first. Later try the Fusion.

My impression is that the $36 per box premiums are more about the performance of the bullet on the game than super improved accuracy.

I would also suggest (if you want to shoot this rifle a lot) is to look into reloading. It isn't that expensive to start if you look for a cheap set up (Like Lee) and look for used dies. Ebay is a great source for used reloading equipment All of my RCBS dies were purchased that way and work like brand new for about 1/2 the price.

I had two 30-06 rifles a while back and while 1 of them LOVED the Fusion rounds, the other hated them. Both shot the standard Federal rounds equally well.
