No no you can not...it would probably explode I'm guessing.....although depending on the bullet diameter it MIGHT go through the barrel...but it would probably **** alot of stuff up....and well get you killed.
Basically from what I understand .308 is just the standardization of all the Allies and Axis's bullets so they would all use the same round....easier to get ammo...etc.
30.06 is an American classic so that's really the only reason why it's still around.

Yes you could chamber a 308 into a 30-06 and pull the trigger. Would it work all that well? I doubt it. These cartridges headspace off the shoulder if that is wrong Your BANG turns into a BOOM. If you fired a 308 in an 06 chamber then the shoulder and neck would expand splitting the case causing powder and gases to spew from the chamber towards your face and eyes. You may end up with a bullet stuck in the barrel and may need to push it out (The same direction as it is going). Hammering on the tip of a bullet that is meant to EXPAND is not a good idea in my book.
The case head is the same dimension on the 308 and 30-06 and that is .473" other than that and the bullet diameter of .308" the dimension's are different.

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. Dr. Adrian Rogers TELL CHAVEZ NOW! CLICK HERE
