The .308 caliber round is a type of ammunition found in Fallout 3. It is only used with the sniper rifle and its unique variants.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: .308 caliber round
The "Grandad's" brand .308 caliber round is a full-size rifle cartridge used primarily in hunting rifles in the United States before the Great War. In the post-War era, it has become a cartridge of choice for high-power conventional weapons and long-range sharpshooters.

CharacteristicsEdit

The .308 caliber round is the third rarest Small Guns ammunition found in the game, next to .44 round, magnum, and BBs; very few enemies carry sniper rifles, and many are located in hard to reach places or have only a small number of rounds to be looted. A notable sniper is Arkansas in Minefield. The hunting rifle largely provides the same effect while using the much more common .32 caliber round, making the sniper rifle and variants limited in effectiveness until a stockpile of ammunition is acquired.
