Case, .308 is a crafting item in Fallout: New Vegas.


This item is used as a component to create .308 rounds on the workbench along with some lead, primer, large rifle and powder, rifle.


  • One can acquire a casing after firing a weapon chambered in .308 about 40% of the time, unless using the JSP type round, which will give a casing 25% of the time.
  • Enemies that use the hunting rifle, notably NCR troops, Great Khans and Fiends, will typically have 2 to 6 cases on them when they die.
  • One can also get 25 .308 casings from .308 case boxes.
  • Occasionally, some traveling merchants will "sell" .308 casings (among many other calibers), but they will always be for free. Likewise, if trying to sell casings to a merchant, no money will be put forth for their purchase.
