First introduced in 1952, the .308 Winchester is the commercial version of the military 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge. It's extremely accurate, which is one of the main reasons along with its power that it is commonly used in military sniper rifles and police sharp-shooter rifles. With its widespread availability, it has grown to become one of the most popular and prevalent cartridges in the world and you will find it just as much in big-game hunting circles as military applications.
It can be found in numerous firearms and movies here on the site - and tends to be involved in some seriously destructive mayhem...... Rambo's M60, Miniguns in Predator and Terminator, and just about any Vietnam film out there.
