i think im ok here,now is it ok to use 308 brass as 7.62 nato and vice versa? thanks
.308 and 7.62NATO are the same.
The brass is esentially the same , dimensionally .
The calibers are not the same , not loaded to the same pressure and the barrel chambers on 7.62 NATO are often longer .
And as with most military brass , the 7.62 NATO brass is thicker & heavier .
But , yes , use .308 Win dies , as far as I know , you can not find 7.62 NATO dies .
You will probably not need small base dies , unless your chamber is tight .
I have a remington bolt rifle that requires small base dies , if the brass was fired in a military rifle .
