    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 .
