I was thinking this same question today at work.
.probably about the same time you posted it too. I was told by someone that you can't shoot 7.62×51 in a .308 because it would blow the bolt back in your face.

.308 Win vs. 7.62×51–The Straight Scoop Before we go much further, lets address the oft-posed question "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.
The short answer is that they differ with regard to pressure and chamber dimensions. Pressures in the 5.56 cartridge are higher than the .223, and as a result the chamber of the 5.56 is different as well.
The 308 Winchester and 7.62X51 NATO are indeed two separate chamberings and cartridges. Their specifications overlap so in many instances the cartridges can be interchanged in a given rifle. Almost all 7.62X51 NATO ammo is manufactured.

While commercial .308 ammo may have slightly higher pressure than 7.62x51mm NATO, it's really the brass and chambers that are the issues to understand. Doing the same thing with thicker military brass is no big deal and the way the system was designed. Thicker brass can handle some extra.
