.308 safe for Israeli Mauser?
Picked up an Israeli Mauser today, mint condition, dou 43 make, rebarrelled in 1964 to 7.62mm NATO. Is it OK to use commercial .308 Winchester in lieu of the military round, I understand the .308 adds about 15,000 psi to the chamber pressures, about 30% overpressure.
I have another Mauser sporter in .308, and have had no problems there.
What a great history lesson these Israeli Mausers are.
