308 ammo – 148 Grain FMJ – German Military Surplus

This 308 ammo Winchester ammunition is German Military surplus, manufactured by Chemnitzer Sportwaffen und Munitionsfabrik GmbH and is believed to be 1990’s production. This brass cased ammunition is Berdan primed so it is not recommended for reloading. The projectiles are magnetic so you will not be able to shoot them indoors. This is due to the copper-nickel alloy coating on the projectile which gives it a unique color. The ammunition is lead core and comes in 20 round boxes or 1,000 round cases.

The History of 7.62 NATO vs. 308 ammo Winchester

Throughout the late-Forties and early-Fifties, military rocket surgeons endeavored to improve the efficacy of the M1 Garand and the .30-06 cartridge it used. The most obvious contender that was suited for higher capacity box mags was the newly-modified .300 Savage called the T65.

A rimless bottlenecked rifle cartridge, the T65 was the result of a years-long test program, one that found the T65 to demonstrate power equal to that of the classic .30-06. It could fire 147 grain rounds at 2,750 FPS.

This cartridge laid the groundwork for what the 7.62 NATO would eventually become and is widely understood to be the first iteration of the cartridge. It had a 47mm case and carried steel jacket lead core 150 grain Flat Base bullets.

It was this cartridge that found favor among the military for emergency operations. But, as always, the commercial market was a cash cow begging to graze and Winchester saw the opportunity to make big bucks off a civilian model.

In no time at all (1952, to be exact), they had introduced the .308 Winchester. Here’s where the argument can be made that they aren’t different since the .308 Win was specifically designed to be a civilian variant of the 7.62x51mm NATO, even hitting the market two years before the NATO adoption of the 7.62.

Today, .308 Win ammo is the most popular short-action, big-game hunting cartridge around, leaving its twin in the dust. It is an effective caliber for everything from big game hunting to self-defense.

Having said that, let’s delve into some of the ways in which these two compare and contrast. I trust you’ll be surprised at what we find.
