.308 / 7.62 NATO

.308 Winchester ammo and the 7.62x51 cartridge are very similar to one another but are not technically identical. Despite the minor differences, the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute has deemed the cartridges safe to use interchangeably.

The commercial load, .308, is an incredibly popular round among recreational shooters and hunters in the United States. Widely used to take down game such as whitetail deer, .308 with a specialty bullet can also be used to take down much larger game like caribou or black bear. Look for a number of soft point and expanding bullets available to hunters looking to use .308 in the field. Among these, Hornady's Interlock, Remington's Core-Lokt and Federal's Fusion line-up are extremely popular .308 cartridges for sale.

7.62x51 NATO, the military round, was actually derived from .308. 7.62x51mm ammo offers similar ballistics to 30-06 rounds but does so with a case that's slightly shorter, allowing less brass to be used in the manufacturing process and permitting military members to potentially carry more rounds at the same weight.
