^^ actually there are two, M-1 was either a .30 or .308 cal and the Garand was a big ass .30'6 type cartridge.... I have one in my Grandmas Attic in Detroit. I'd love to get it over here. My Dad gave it to me. He used it in the Korean war. I shot it once when I was about 14 knocked me on my ass never shot it again :(

.30 IS 7.62mm... .3inch = 7.62 milimeter!

7.62mm NATO is also known as the Winchester .308 caliber.
30-06 is also .30 caliber, or 7.62mm, but with a longer case. Introduced into service in 19......'06.
Used in WWII M1-Garand. Same rifle used in Korea but retrofitted to shoot the shorter 7.62mm NATO round.

M14 (M1A) was the final evolution of this rifle design. These are true Battle Rifles!

Then came the AR-15 (M-16) and the current .223, or 5.56mm NATO round.

If I missed anything else, point it out to me.

IF I recall correctly, the M-1 Carbine was produced in numbers for WWII trench warfare. It was decided that the 30-06 was too much cartridge for the trenches, so they developed a straight-wall .30 cal cartridge called the (?) .30 carbine (?). Ballistics of 200 grain / 2000 fps, much less bang for the close spaces.
