- Q & A
.308 Win was created in 1952 by Winchester – of course – as a civilian version of the military’s 7.62x51mm NATO round. Winchester first marketed it as a hunting round and offered two rifles chambered in the powerful round, the Model 70 and Model 88. It didn’t take long for the .308 to begin enormously popular, and today it’s a favorite for a number of police sharpshooters, military snipers, and hunters. And, of course, it’s just a phenomenal round overall. There’s some confusion over its similarities to the 7.62x51mm, but they aren’t identical. Despite that, the cartridges are listed as interchangeable by SAAMI.
At 147 grain these are fairly lightweight for the .308 Win. Their lighter weight means they move to your target with significant speed and they’re still heavy enough to pack a solid punch. These are FMJ rounds which don’t expand on impact, and keeping in mind that rifle rounds can travel for miles before stopping, it’s wise to have a good backstop so you know where your bullet’s going to end up. This ammunition is fantastic for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Each round moves down-range like lightning with impressive speed and slams into your target with compelling force. This ammunition is made in brass cases with berdan primer to ensure ignition and extend their shelf life.
There are 600 target rounds packed loose into an ammo can here. They’re made by Argentina Military Surplus, an established company in Argentina, and meet SAAMI or CIP specifications. Your .308 is a big, powerful rifle, and if you haven’t been taking it out as much due to the cost of ammunition, you can finally afford range time with these target rounds. Don’t neglect your favorite rifle. Get your order in for this 600-round ammo can, and spend some quality time feeding your gun.
