The .308 Winchester typically has higher pressure and more precise chamber specifications, making it more suitable for commercial hunting and target rifles. The 7.62×51 NATO, on the other hand, is designed to withstand the rigors of military use and is slightly lower in pressure, ensuring greater safety margins in automatic weapons.
