Product Description

The 7.62×51mm NATO, often simply referred to as the 7.62 NATO, is a rifle cartridge developed in the 1950s as the standard ammunition for NATO forces. It is a powerful and widely used cartridge in military and civilian applications. Here are some key characteristics and details about the 7.62×51mm NATO round:

  1. Caliber: The caliber of the 7.62×51mm NATO round is 7.62 millimeters, and it is commonly known as .308 Winchester in civilian usage.

  2. Origin: The cartridge was developed by the United States, and it was officially adopted as the standard rifle cartridge for NATO forces in 1954.

  3. Bullet Design: The typical 7.62×51mm NATO round features a full metal jacket (FMJ) bullet, which has a lead core enclosed in a jacket made of copper or a similar material. The jacketing helps improve feeding in automatic weapons and prevents barrel fouling.

  4. Bullet Weight: The standard bullet weight for the 7.62 NATO is around 147 to 150 grains (approximately 9.5 to 9.7 grams). However, different loadings with varying bullet weights are also available.

  5. Muzzle Velocity: The muzzle velocity can vary depending on the specific load, but it typically ranges from around 2,600 to 2,800 feet per second (790 to 850 meters per second).

  6. Military Use: The 7.62×51mm NATO round was designed for use in battle rifles and machine guns, such as the M14 rifle and the M60 machine gun. It has been widely employed by NATO member countries and other military forces around the world.

  7. Civilian Use: The .308 Winchester, which is ballistically similar to the 7.62 NATO, is a popular caliber for civilian hunting and long-range shooting. Many sporting rifles are chambered for .308 Winchester.

  8. Recoil: The 7.62 NATO has noticeable recoil, especially in lighter rifles. This can affect controllability, particularly in rapid-fire situations.

  9. Versatility: The 7.62×51mm NATO round is known for its versatility and effectiveness at medium to long ranges. It has been used in a variety of military and law enforcement roles, and its civilian counterpart, the .308 Winchester, is a popular choice for hunting and sport shooting.
