Re: 308 vs 7.62 Nato
Slightly off topic, but related: I have always heard and read that a 5.56 will chamber into a .223 rifle, (because they are the same size cartridge) but the 5.56 will eventually blow blow up the rifle, because it was designed for civilian .223 ammo. But a 5.56 rifle can handle both the 5.56 and .223 because it was designed for the hotter, more powerful military 5.56 round.
So JLA, are you saying that civilian .308 is actually hotter than military 7.62?
WILDCAT, if your rifle is designed for the hotter of the two cartridges, then you can fire either. ( but I don't know which is hotter)
NO MORE CHANGE!
