If you are looking for a .308 CETME, best be sure that is what you buy- NOT 7.62 NATO, or 7.62 CETME.

A .308 Winchester can shoot 7.62 NATO. Reverse is not always true. Reverse is DEFINTELY not true for 7.62 CETME. Difference in max load pressures.

A 5.56 rifle can safely shoot .223, but reverse not always true.

Ok thank you I saw cetme for 500 bucks and wanted to get one but people say stay away from the century arms?
I really just want a accurate 308 with at least a 20 round mag under 1000 dollars

Default Cai cetme

The CAI CETMEs are known to be 'hit or miss'. If you do buy one get it direct from Century so if you have any problems, you can send it back. I bought one from them and after a little tinkering, it runs great. Century buys these firearms, ships them to the US and detroys the receiver and barrel and rebuilds them using a mix of original and new 'made in the USA' parts.
If your into the CETME design,also take a look at the PTR-91 GI. These go for around $900.
As to the ammo question, best to stick with 7.62 NATO(READ LINK)
Don't be scared away from the CETME, just be prepared to tinker. I love mine

The Gun Zone -- .30 Caliber Ammo

Also, HK mags can be had in like new cond for .97 and many other parts are available.
Cheers

Default Cai

CAI is the largest importer of firearms into the US. Under the watch-ful eye of the BATF, select fire receivers and barrels are de-milled. CAI then 'farms' out the re-building of the parts with some new USA parts and we get some pretty cool firearms. Does CAI make firearms? You say no. I say.. good for you CAI
