7.62 is .3 inches. If I'm not mistaken. But hell I've been wrong before.... Just ask my wife

I'm fairly certain the are .311, I've heard they are harder to come by.

IIRC, the Russian Mosins are .311. The Finnish Mosins are closer to .308.

You would need to "slug" your barrel to know for sure.

^ That's the best answer you could get. Slug it to be safe. I looked up the specs, and some Mosins come close to .308, some are .309, and others are .310, and .311.
