It is the exact opposite of the .5.56/ .223 situation.
That's what I was wondering. Thanks and good to know, glad I got a .308win

Do NOT shoot commercial 308 win from a 7.62X51 NATO chamber. You will destroy your headspacing at the very least.

I have practiced with the Nato round with My CZ-550. It is safe, but dirties your gun very quickly. Shorter barrel rifles will see .308 shooting 1 or 2 inches higher at 100 meters then the Nato rounds.
