I've been having a lot of fun playing on Kurgans server over the weekend, I saw a lot of shenanigans this weekend though.
I hopped in a Humvee with a guy and he drove straight across the map and into the enemy base. People base-raping, stuff like that. I shot a few people with 40mm quite a few times and they didn't go down, but I say thats my extremely effective lack of skill.
7.62x51mm is to .308Win as 5.56x45mm is to .223Rem
Miltary powder and shell casings are the difference.
Edit: As an additional note. The operating pressures between military and civilian ammunition is a key factor. You never want to shoot a 5.56 round out of a gun chambered in .223. Bad nasty things will happen. I assume the same between 7.62x51 and .308
