The 7.62 NATO cartridge dates to the 1950s, when it replaced the .30-06 Springfield in US military service. It was in turn succeeded by the 5.56 NATO round when the military transitioned from the M-14 to the M-16 as its primary service rifle, but remains in wide use for snipers, machine gunners, and some special forces personnel. Its commercial counterpart, the .308 Winchester, is usually loaded to higher pressures but maintains safe interchangeability.
Winchester ammunition is loaded in the USA using non-corrosive primers and reloadable brass cases.
