Good article and great pictures. Very informative except for the last sentence in the next to last paragraph..

" The actual picture shows contact using the .308 field gauge in this Israeli 7.62 conversion barrel."

He's using the wrong gage..... :roll:

A .308 FIELD in a 7.62 chamber is "close" to a 7.62 NO GO.
