It's an old 7mm rechambered to 7.62 CETME (an underpowered 7.62 NATO), not quite .308. In fact, civilian .308 is not considered particularly safe in these or the FR-7. Military 7.62x51 is generally considered safe. .308 is a little too hot and has a chamber pressure that approaches or exceeds the failure pressure.
