CETME chambers same as HK's?

I've been looking over the current crop of SOG and Century 7.62mm CETME rifles assembled from kits and new US receivers. Before I plunk down my cash for one, as a reloader, I have one nagging question - are the CETME chambers fluted like the HK91/G3? Anybody have a CETME here who can confirm or deny it? Thanks in advance!
"Bother", said Pooh, as he chambered another round...

I have a Cetme and yes the chamber is fluted like a HK91. The brass after it is ejected and thrown 30 feet behind and to the right of you, will have a series of lines running down the case showing off the rifle's fluted chamber. I don't think the flutes will mess up the brass as long as you full length resize them. So far I've only been shooting berdan primed surplus ammo through mine and haven't reloaded for it yet.
