Sorry for the hijack but does Grandpa's still exist in Clarksville? I saw your post renegade50 and it made me think back. I bought my first rifle from Grandpa's back in the early 70s. I remember it was a Marlin 39a that I bought for $89.95 and still have and treasure.

Sounds like you got ahold of a worker who THOUGHT he knew a lot.

Remingtom Model 760 30-06 Sprng. The place was on 41A (not grandads) but the BIG surplus store with the eagle sign and a pawn shop across the parking lot. Thanks everbody for proving I'm not crazy. I knew because I already had some 7.62 that was same as 30-06. I understand the other.308 rounds but I did TRY to convince the dealer that SOME 7.62 would work in 30-06 that not all was for .308. I know he didn't misunderstand me because I specifically told him 30-06 and that some of the cheaper FOREIGN surplus/manufacturers called it 7.62x?. At the time I didn't know the casing number (63). He just thought I was nuts. I have found a bulk supplier of new Bosnian ammo that the manufacturer lists as 7.62x63 and restates it as 30-06 like I had thought. It's noncorrosive, 150 gr. soft point not FMJ (which would mean I can use on groundhogs or coyotes too!), solid brass, Boxer Primed. By the 500 rd. case it costs $7.60 a box. More than surplus FMJ but I think it may be worth it for the soft point (since TWRA won't let you use FMJ on varmints I don't think) and NEW without any % being bad. Thanks to everybody I am now wiser and can order EXACTLY what I need!

They just said they didn't know anything about ammo and sent me over to the pawnshop/gun store across the lot. The old guy there is the one that thought I was nuts.

7.62 stands for bullet diameter, the 54, 54 is the length. 308 and 30-06 shoot the same diameter bullet.

In a nutshell, YUP! 54 mm is the length of the unloaded case.
