    Hey guys. I get mixed responses on shooting .308 in 7.62x51. Some say yes and the ones that say no site things as .308 cartridge pressure, brass thickness, slightly different headspacing. What's the official word. I just purchased a SCAR 17 and don't won't to screw it up or myself up.
    Thanks in advance.

    SAAMI does *not* list it as a potentially unsafe combination.

    They do list 5.56x45 in a 223Rem as unsafe, so it's an issue they would worry about.
