No, this is the Russian cartridge, not the 7.62x51, 308 NATO. Mike

No, completely different round. The .308 is 7.62x51 if I'm not mistaken. Next time you're at a shop ask them to show you one of each. They'll be glad to unless it's a jerk shop. We do it all the time for people.

No. 7.62x39mm is the Russian SKS and AK round. The .308 Winchester is known as 7.62mm NATO or 7.62x51mm. Hope that clears things up somewhat.
