Question....What is the equivelant Nato round to the .308? For instance, .223 has 5.56. On a CMMG stripped lower, it is marked 7.62, so would it be 7.62X54 or 54R?
.308 and 7.62x51 are the exact same thing
they are not the same.7.62x51 is .308
Isn't the .308 a higher pressure round than the 7.62 meaning you should buy the .308 in order to shoot both? I could be wrong but I thought I read this somewhere just making surekytowboater said:Get an upper chambered in 7.62x51, then you can shoot both the 7.62 and .308 rounds. Both seem plentiful.
Same pressure curve. 308 chambers are longer in lead than nato so some hunting off the shelf ammo can cause over pressure from the bullet ogive too far forward coming into contact with the rifling when chambered in a 762 nato gun. You can have a gunsmith cut a nato chamber to 308 spec then its not an issueIsn't the .308 a higher pressure round than the 7.62 meaning you should buy the .308 in order to shoot both?

In a DPMS it doesn't matter which you shoot,because all of their chambers are cut for a 308,so shooting 7.62x51 rounds is a gimme.I was questioning because my barrel is marked 7.62x51. Those dorks said that there's no difference.
knock knock, whos there? com. com who? common sense says if they were the same they would have the same name.I must not have made this clear enough. DPMS told me there is no difference between 7.62X51 and .308 rounds. Not only on their firearms, but all.
