The 7.62x51mm NATO bullet consists of a gilding metal jacket and a lead antimony slug. It is a boat-tailed bullet (rear of bullet is tapered) and weighs 173 grains. The tip of the bullet is not colored. The base of the cartridge is stamped with the year of manufacture and a circle that has vertical and horizontal lines, sectioning it into quarters. Its spread (accuracy standard) for a 10-shot group is no more than 12 inches at 550 meters.
Unlike in Fallout 2, the 7.62mm round is undoubtedly one of the most important ammunition types in Fallout Tactics. They're used in the most common and most powerful small and big guns, and can be found almost anywhere in the game.
