|For an overview of the topic, see .308 round.|
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.
The hunting rifle 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.
Weapons using this ammunition
- Chief Gustavo in Tenpenny Tower
- Flak and Shrapnel in Rivet City
- Karl in Meresti Metro station
- Knight Captain Durga in the Citadel
- Lucky Harith will have many of these rounds after investing in him during the unmarked quest Merchant Empire.
- Sydney after moving to Underworld
- Moira Brown will sometimes sell .308 ammunition.
