308 CETME

I just ran across some information concerning surplus 308 CETME ammunition. It seems this is compatable with a 7.62X51 chamber, but the load is much milder. I have a K11 that has been converted I was thinking I might be able to shoot it through without any worries.

Make sense?
I have never seen it for sale but someone says they found it in bulk recently at decent prices. Anyone know where?

Really no such animal as "308 CETME", it is 7.62 CETME, and it is essentially a light loaded 7.62x51/.308 round. It would be safe in just about any 7.62/.308 chambered gun.

I got some from grafs a few months ago
its fairly cheap and the recoil is really mild but its also corrosive
funny thing is it is to mild to work the action on a cetme (semi only from cia)

thanks for correcting the nomenclature. Did a little better on google with the correct term.
Still didn't see any in stock anywhere though.

Yes, you would reload CETME as any other .308-7.62 round, just using lighter bullets and/or powder charges.
