AK47 in .308?
I was just watching an episode of Cops, set in California. A possible gang-related crime was being investigated and there were shell casings on the ground. The officer points it out and says, "It looks like a .308, which is consistent with an AK47."
I'm thinking to myself that the first caliber associated with the AK47 is the 7.62x39. I know that a 7.62 round is in the .30 caliber family, but it is NOT a .308 round. I'm guessing these police officers were not firearm experts...
