Yep, if you have a barrel marked "308". They cut the chambers tighter than on 7.62x51 so look at your barrel to see which one you have.
Note that DPMS does not warranty shooting with Wolf ammo, or any other steel case. Or anything from South Africa, surplus or commercial. However, my 7.62 chambered LR308 does operate fine with Wolf and South African surplus and PMP (South African commercial).
Mine is 308 but I had far more problems with 308 Ammo than I had with 7.62 NATO.
