7.62 NATO / .308 Winchester – Snap Caps Dummy Rounds

(25 customer reviews)


Set of five 7.62 NATO / .308 Winchester dummy rounds / snap caps / fake bullets.

Cartridge Options Explained

With this option steel BB’s (ball bearings) are added to the cartridges. This makes them rattle when shaken, aiding in identification as inert, snap caps.

Cartridges all patina darkened to aid in identification.


Set of five 7.62 NATO / .308 Winchester dummy rounds / snap caps / fake bullets.  This cartridge was adopted by the US military in the mid-1950’s to replace the 30-06 Springfield, which had been in service since before World War One.  The goal was to create a lighter round with more easily managed recoil that still had similar ballistics to its predecessor.  It was made the standard rifle cartridge for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and was used by the US in the M-14 infantry rifle and M-60 machine gun.  Most other NATO countries adopted the FN FAL in this caliber.

The 7.62×51 NATO and the .308 Winchester are dimensionally the same; however, the 7.62, which is the military designation for this round, is generally loaded to high pressures than its civilian (.308) counterpart.

Great for safely function checking, as an addition to your re-enactment kit, or just display with your fine piece of military history.

Available with spent primers remaining, empty primer pockets, holes drilled in cases, or rubber inserts added to the primer pockets.  Properly sized, seated, and crimped.

Thanks for looking!

    Got what I needed at a reasonable price. I use these fake rounds to ensure proper cycling of my weapons before I actually fire them. Items were well packaged and shipping was reasonalbe. I would buy from this seller again when I need realistic ammunition without the danger of a missfire. Thanks again and God bless.

    Have a gun that is not feeding rounds. I ordered these dummy rounds so I can safely mess with it in my home in the city, along with 2 other common calibers.

    These are all well made inert cartridges. I was worried about the bullet being pushed back into the casing mouth after several cycling’s, but the bullets aren’t budging after dozens of dry firing. And the rubber disc in the primer pocket is holding very well. (And that’s the only way to distinguish these from live rounds) I’m EXTREMELY impressed by these!
