Anyone have experience with this rifle? I've been poking around different forums, and they have been found in a .308. What would be the better round, 7.62 or .308?

Newbies, please watch THIS before posting.

Hehe.

7.62x51 Nato is just about the same as .308 Win (The 7.62 just has thicker brass and slighlty less powder).

If your talking about 7.62x39, then .308 is a much better round.

I think he actually means the 7.62x54R, which owns the other 7.62's, NATO and Warsaw Pact. The downside might be finding quality ammo. There's plenty of surplus to be found, though. If I HAD to have an AK-based DM platform, I'd have an M76, hand's down (7.92 Mauser, FTW).
