New Caliber from Cheaper Than Dirt?!!!

Just got my Sep '12 Cheaper Than Dirt catalog, and, while perusing the cover illustration, what did I discover but a brand new caliber! Among the graphics on the cover are a number of cartridge headstamps of various brands and calibers, including a Winchester loading for .308 Rem!

After thoroughly searching the catalog, however, I am unable to find any offerings in this new caliber! Perhaps this catalog should have been the April edition!
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.

In the past it was very common for companies to exactly, or closely, copy another company's ammo and stick their own name on it. Bill Ruger refused to put .357 S&W Magnum on his guns. In this case I think it's just a typo.

I showed that to my buddy who collects anything and everything in the way of .308/7.62x51 ammo. I thought his head was going to explode!
