Caliber Notes: In 1952, the .308 Winchester cartridge was developed as a powerful 30 caliber round designed for short action firearms. Compatible with the 7.62X51 mm NATO cartridge, it quickly became one of the world's most sought-after hunting and target rifle cartridges due to its range and power - capable of taking down any North American big game from up to 1000 yards away and beyond!
