I'm sure this has came up before, but i'm on a time constraint and don't have time to look...

Can you shoot 7.62 out of a .308? Specifically a Remington 700P? Found a great deal on one and would like to know... THANKS!

7.62x51

Yes

But why shoot junk, unless 118LR or M852, through a good gun? Seems to defeat the purpose of a precision rifle with MG ammo?

Thanks guys! It's mine!!! Now to get a scope...

The reason for the "junk" ammo is cause i also have a M1A and a lot of 7.62 ammo. However, i have no money since i'm buying this gun till payday, and i wanted to test the weapon out. he will sell me the gun minus the scope, rings, and mount (badger ordinance stuff with a leupold mark 4 m3 10x40!!!!!!!!!!!!) but he's leaving that stuff on till i test it out. I didn't want to mess up the gun and was afraid to ask him that question as he seems to be a VERY compitent shooter and used the weapon for WORK, and i didn't want him to think i don't know anything about guns cause he kinda doesn't want to sell the thing anyways even though he now has a M24 to replace it. He seems very partial to it.

Kinda like an old camaro that you spent your life rebuiding... you won't just sell it to anyone... you know what i mean???

Gotta get it while the gettin's good!!!

i hoped that made some sense cause i'm really excited, and was on the phone with him while typing. He's gonna sell it to me, i just gotta wait till 1745 EST to go get it... told him all i had was 7.62 and he laughed and said that was okay, but the weapon prolly would only produce .75 to 1 @ 100 yds MOA if i was a good shot with the gun . Makes me wonder what it will do with some match grade stuff... i should prolly ask him.

Keep in mind you may have some extraction issues with various 7.62 ammo if it's a tight rifle.
