    Or load the 7.62X39 in a Mosin Nagant M44. Or the 7.62X54R Mosin Nagant round into the AK or SKS. It won't fit in them as it is quite a bit larger a round while shooting about the same caliber bullet. The 7.62X54R is so much bigger that a 7.62X39 with bullet barely is as long as the case is of the 54R.
    Lol I was trying not to confuse the poor guy cause he seems rather clueless. But I'm sure he's throughly confused by now anyways..

    Since this is the the nice folks of the country here to help each other I would like to ax how many rounds in a six shooter.
    Five. Always five.

    This is also part of the answer. When you divide the 7.62 by 25.4mm/inch you get .3, which is essentially .308---these numbers are the diameter of the bullet. This also holds true for any of the caliber notations whether they are in metric (mm) or english (.000) units, which are a fraction of 1inch--ie .308 is almost 1/3 of an inch. It is actually 7.83 mm.
    As more obvious example, look at a 9mm cartridge and a 38 cartridge and you will note that both bullets are about the same diameter--they may look different and be on top of different cartridges but their diameters are about the same. 9mm divided by 25.4 mm/inch is around .35ths of an inch whereas a 38 bullet is .38ths of an inch; so they may have different velocities and power and shapes based on the cartridge length and amount of gunpowder,and the actual shape, they are almost the same diameter.

    7.62X39 = .311" <--- AK round
    7.62X45 = .304"
    7.62X51 = .308" <---- NATO designation of the .308" Winchester
    7.62X51R = .308" <--- .30-'30 Winchester
    .303 British = .3125"

    Now is everyone confused as to 7.62 rounds?
