.308 Winchester

Passion for Precision

One of Lapua’s flagship cartridges – the legendary .308 Winchester. For all types of hunting, the ammunition MUST do its job – without fail.

One of the most popular big game hunting cartridges in Finland and Scandinavia, the .308 was introduced by Winchester in 1952. This cartridge has achieved tremendous popularity among sport shooters, law enforcement and military over the decades. Hunters around the world know it as a compact and powerful round, notable for its inherent accuracy. The powder capacity of this round is less than the .30-06, 8x57 IS or 9.3x62 but with modern powders it delivers energy levels similar to the .30-06. Hunters can rely on it for serious hunting situations like bear, especially when loaded with our Naturalis® bullet. Lapua’s hunting ammunition selection for the .308 Win has three pure hunting rounds for this caliber.
