    I have acquired some .308 rounds that I would like to shoot through my FN bolt gun. Problem is aside from the fact that they are .308 rounds made by Federal I don't know anything else about them. Any simple way to identify the bullet weight?

    You'd have to pull one and weigh it.

    On initial glance I would agree. Looks like AR ammo.

    Might be a bit easer to eyeball if you took the photo next to a ruler.

    Is any special equipment needed to remove the bullet or will a set of pliers do? I have approximately 200 rounds.

    a pair of pliers will do it. Just be careful.

    Kinda work it back and forth like you're loosening a tooth.

    Skyleach, that isn't AR ammo (well it could be depending on the AR)
    The majority of AR pattern weapons fire 5.56x45

    or you can buy a bullet puller.
