Yes it is. And the casing is longer. 7.82 casing length is 2.790". The warbird round is faster and hits alot harder than the normal 308 even though 7.82 warbird and 308 warbird are the same round.

Try putting the pictures in an album on your computer in JPEG. Go to Manage Attachments. Click on browser to find the picture. Upload. Repeat for additional pictures. Make sure you post the reply from Manage attachments.

Well its lapped and ready to shoot. Just need a day its not to windy. Would have shot it today but.....15 to 30 mph winds all day kinda seems like a bad idea for a test run lol.

Still cant get pics to upload but its definately a success. Its smallest 5 shot group was. 975" at 100 yards. I shot two full boxes through it with the last group being 2.896" at 300 yards. Now to just load some different types up and see what it prefers
