my .02 worth says if it aint stamped on the barrel dont put it in the chamber. it could be the worse day of the rest of your life.there is alot more to it than just fitting in the chamber. like putting a 45LC in a 410. it will work,but alot of bad things can happen.The 410 is not designed for that kind of pressure.barrel could split or worse you could get parts of the chamber in your face. Be very carefull if your gonna do stuff like that. Best thing is DONT do it

That reminded me of this video.

Also, a 308 rifle can fire 7.62x51 but a 7.62x51 rifle cannot fire 308 due to 308 having a higher chamber pressure.

HuntNH I like the scout rifle too but it is pricey
Love my mini 30 very accurate rifle & almost no recoil
if you want to try a mini before buying one just let me know
