.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.

    PMC Bronze .308 offers high value performance; getting consistent 1 1/2” groups in both gas and bolt guns. Very clean.

    The PMC brand is what brass I shoot as I shoot reloads, off hand, subsonic at 25 yards. I get at least 50 reloads, at least, as most brass has never failed.

    After all the years shooting LD I have to say this is quite simply the best long range (non hand-loaded) ammo I have ever used! (Rem 700 w/LeupMk8) I also had 2 of our top LD shooters run 5 cold shots, they had same results! (To note all 3 of us run the same ballistics Calc. & they have very high $$ Comp-builds) Simply outstanding, close to our hand loaded rounds, which is quite a lot to say! I shot my Semi-Auto @600 as well, a DD 308 w/LeupMk6, also outstanding. After thousands of LD rounds I am just impressed - If I can find more of this...

    Got 46% (M118) to 54% (M80) split. Wanted more M118 but happy with what I received. Have not shot any of it yet but will soon. Thanks.
