The 7.62 CETME and 7.62 NATO rounds are dimensionally identical, the CETME round was just loaded to lower pressures.

1916s weere originally chambered for 7 mauser and can still be found in that cambering, so it's important to know your rifle before you start shooting it. No chamber insert conversion to .308 is even possible.

The FR7 is a pretty strong action, just not as strong as a large ring M98 mauser like the FR8.

The FR8 will handle any commercial or military ammo you feed it.

The 1916 will handle military surplus 7.62 NATO just fine, more concern needs to be shown with hotter commercial .308 Win loads but I think the concerns about over pressure are exaggerated.
