.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. Look for both 7.62x51 ammo and .308 Winchester ammo in stock in the following bullets or categories:

    I recently participated in a 2 day percission rifle class using this ammo. Accuracy was very good,1 moa most of the time. Was able to hit 8" plates at 500 yds. My only complaint is it seems slightly underpowered. Would not reliably cycle my PSA AR-10.

    These group very well and function well in a Gunsite Scout Rifle and a Kimber 84M. Have yet to hunt with them, but do expect they will do fine up to mule deer size game. Exceptional value. I'll be buying a good quantity.

    All my Savage, Mauser, and AR-10s shoot well with this ammo. However, I have noticed any inconsistencies in the setup of the rifle, scope, windage etc. tends to be exaggerated in this ammo past 150m compared to my hand loads, Federal, and Winchester brands.

    I bought two cans of Malaysian .308 and fired all 1080 rounds through my M1A1, no issues at all. This stuff was accurate per my marksmanship out to 300 yards with iron sights.
