Thread: What 308 to get ?

  1. #11
    My vote is for the Scar 17. It is chambered for the 7.62X51 and will also shoot .308. You can shoot any type of ammo but the steel cased ammo is hard on the extractor.

    You are backwards, you can shoot 762 in a 308 but not 308 in a 762.

    From accurateshooter.com

    “Are the .308 Winchester and 7.62×51 NATO one and the same?” The simple answer is no. There are differences in chamber specs and maximum pressures. The SAMMI/CIP maximum pressure for the .308 Win cartridge is 62,000 psi, while the 7.62×51 max is 50,000 psi. Also, the headspace is slightly different. The .308 Win “Go Gauge” is 1.630″ vs. 1.635″ for the 7.62×51. The .308′s “No-Go” dimension is 1.634″ vs. 1.6405″ for a 7.62×51 “No Go” gauge. That said, it is normally fine to shoot quality 7.62×51 NATO ammo in a gun chambered for the .308 Winchester (though not all NATO ammo is identical). Clint McKee of Fulton Armory notes: “[N]obody makes 7.62mm (NATO) ammo that isn’t to the .308 ‘headspace’ dimension spec. So 7.62mm ammo fits nicely into .308 chambers, as a rule.” You CAN encounter problems going the other way, however. A commercial .308 Win round can exceed the max rated pressure for the 7.62×51. So, you should avoid putting full-power .308 Win rounds into military surplus rifles that have been designed for 50,000 psi max.

    The LMT MWS uses both .308 or 7.62x51. Also, if you choose to use any similar round, close in size to the .308, the LMT will allow you to screw on a new barrel (they provide the torque wrench and socket to do it yourself) and now it is chambered for that caliber. This option is also available to swap out different length barrels if you'd like. Caliber barrels that you can screw in are: .243, .260, 6.5mm, 7mm-08, or .338.

    This is why the MWS moniker. It stands for modular weapon system. I love mine.

    I've been saving up for a scar 17...but now I'm thinking I'll go for the colt le901 and get a dedicated .22, 5.56, 300blk uppers for it for just a little bit more than a single scar 17.

    The manufacturer states in there manual.
    "The SCAR 17S is designed to operate with NATO spec 7.62X51mm ammunition (308 Win.)
    The barrel and action of this rifle have been made with substantial safety margins over the pressures developed by established American loads. However we assume no responsibility for incidents which occur through the use of cartridges of nonstandard dimension or those developing pressures in excess of SAAMI established standards."

    On one hand they include "(308 Win.)" and "substantial safety margins" and on the other hand they assume no responsibility.
    If you read through the FN,s forum you will see that many of the SCAR 17 owners shoot both 7.62X51 and 308 Win. with no ill effects. The only caution I have read is to stay away from reloads and steel case ammunition. I do not know what pressures are developed by the M118LR and the MK316 but they are also fired through the SCAR on a regular basis.
