Just a heads up for all you 7.62 shooters. J&G sales has .308 russian tulammo 500rds for $169.95. Doesn't show up on their web sight. Had to call and order it.
This is not NATO ammo. It is russian steel case marked 308 win on the box. russia is not part of nato. It is 150gr FMJ silver bullet (steel a magnet sticks to it)Could someone tell me if this ammo is 7.62 nato?
Additionally, NATO spec ammo usually has the circle/cross on the headstamp and its all been brass cased, at least all that I've seen has been.Like the .223/5.56 discussion,the 7.62x51/.308 are outwardly the same spec and dies for reloading are only marked '.223' or '.308'. There are no dies made for '5.56' or '7.62x51'. Again,there is no difference...except for case capacity in cc's. All ammo must meet the SAAMI specs for that caliber...or it cannot be sold in the USA. Some firearms do not digest steel cases very well. As stated above,the Rusky stuff usually feeds well in most guns. (sitting back,eating pop-corn and waiting for deluge of dissent....LOL)
