umm no.... the .308 is 7.62x51, a completely different cartridge. 7.62x39 and 7.62x54 are the popular soviet cartridges.

What do you expect from someone that "cuts sign posts in half at the range" lol If he did that at my range he would experience the difference between the .308 and 7.62 x 39 first hand!
