Well, can I? I've heard you cannot due to headspacing issues. I heard you can use 7.62 ammo in a .308 chamber but not .308 in 7.62. :confused:

My M1A Shoots both Milsurp 7.62 and commercial .308 just fine.

Ok. I got it. Thanks! I think I might go with a .308 barrel for my other g3 clone. Guess I won't use that 7.62 barrel.:D
