7.62x51 and .308 WIN have different SAAMI pressure limits, do they not?

My Speer manual notes that the 7x57 max "working pressure is 46,000 CUP in deference to the weaker model 93 and 95 mausers still in use" ..... the working pressure of the .308 WIN is 52K ....... I would not run 52K loads in a gun designed for less....... but it's your face, and your rifle......
