30 cal, .308 bullets are an extremely popular size as they range from .308 to .309 normally and cover so many different cartridges. From the ever popular 308 Winchester, 30 carbine, 30-30, 30-06 to 300 Whisper, 30-378 Weatherby, 7.63 Mauser, 30 USA Rimless, 308 Corbon, .3-9 Savage, 30 Kurz, 300 BLK (7.62 × 35 mm), 7.5mm Schmidt–Rubin, 300 Winchester Magnum, 30 Carbine, 309 JDJ, .30-03 Springfield, .30-06 JDJ, .307 GNR, 7.62 × 51 mm NATO, 300 Weatherby Magnum, 30 Army (30-40 Krag), 7.82 mm Lazzeroni, and dozens more. It seems like this is a very popular size bullet for both NATO and U.S. civilian use.
The .308 has exceptional accuracy and is compatible with a large number of smokeless powders for reloading. Which is no wonder it is one of the most popular NATO rounds, the 7.62mm x 51mm. The difference between the .308 Winchester and 7.62 NATO is about the same as the .223 Remington and the 5.56 NATO. The 7.62 has a slightly thicker case internally to allow for a higher pressure. The rule of thumb is you can shoot a .308 in a 7.62 gun, but don't shoot a 7.62 factory round in a .308 rifle. Also, like most military brass, the NATO rounds normally have a crimped primer. For a beginner, a crimped primer appears to be a real problem to remove and to process the primer pocket, but for an experienced reloader, it is no problem at all.
Another point to remember, 'bullets' are projectile tips or bullet heads, they can't just be put into a gun and fired. They are one of the four required components necessary to make a 'live' cartridge (ammunition). So insure you are really shopping for what you expect the product to do, if you want 'ready to fire' then you are looking for 'ammo' or 'ammuntion'.
Common 308 projectiles weight from the low 100's up through 200 grains. The medium weights, 150 through 170 are favored for deer, and the lighter ones, great for varmint hunting. Below are the items related to reloading the 308 we currently have in-stock.
