The following section is transcluded from .308 caliber round. To modify, please edit the source page.

The .308 is a rimless, bottlenecked rifle cartridge that enjoyed tremendous popularity on the market before the Great War. Excellent performance in all aspects led to its widespread adoption by civilian and military weapons manufacturers, with hunting, marksman, and even automatic rifles manufactured to use this type of ammunition. Grandad's brand[1] .308 full metal jacket was particularly popular before the war and packages of this ammunition are still commonly available from merchants and within ruins, though military cases with .308 ammunition are more common in some areas. It was this cartridge from which the 7.62mm round was derived. After the war, the .308 cartridge has become a popular round for more powerful homemade bolt action weaponry in the Boston area.
