DiamondKbrass.com
Which is right here in Scottsdale Az sells once fired Lake City brass. It is slightly time consuming because of the thickness of the brass when you start the resizing process but well worth the time spent once you are done.

Once you get past all the hype & misunderstandings its simple. 7.62 is a military spec version of .308 Win. (actually not they are both developed from the same parent round , the .300 Savage

The reloading dies are identical (which should tell you something)!

Yes the brass is thicker, but thats not really the point. Its thicker to withstand the greater firing & cycling stress of fully automatic weapons.

Because the outside dimensions are fixed so it'll chamber the thickness takes up internal, not external volume. Now because of this the charge weight has to be reduced (typically 1.5~2.0Gr for any given load) to keep the pressures to the same levels.
Most of the confusion comes from the 2 rounds using a different & non-interchangeable measuring system & data!
It like saying which is colder 32℉ or 0℃!
