Get the .308 one if it actually is .008 bigger. They wear out fast. Truth be told you could probably get by with a brush quite a bit larger and have little issues. I use .40 cloth patches on my .308 just because i dont want to buy two different sizes and the bigger patches work a lot better.

The 30 cal is a bore brush and the 308 is a chamber brush

Your bottom picture is a chamber brush. Those longer brushes at the end are for cleaning the locking lug area in an AR style rifle.

Ya you added pics after my response. 2 different brushes.

The chamer brush has to be listed as .308 so you know its specifically for a .308 case.
