.308 Win and 7.62 NATO?

I was sorting through a bunch of brass I have for calibers that I don't reload and separating them into baggies, in case I ever want to trade/sell/give them away.

I know that there are differences in the commonly-available *loadings* for .308 Win and 7.62 NATO, but for reloading purposes, are the *cases* interchangeable, or should I keep them separate?

Separate them. The 7.62 has less case volume.

Yep, my manual says to decrease 7.62 max load by 2 grains due to the smaller case volume.

Thanks guys - I'll break them into two baggies, then.
