Is the 762x54r round -Dragunov Sniper Rifle Round- the same as the 308 Winchester round?

No. The 7.62x54R round is a rimmed cartridge, first developed in 1891 for use with the Mosin Nagant rifle. The .308 Winchester is derived from the .300 Savage, and has dimensions similar to - but not identical to - the 7.62x51 NATO cartridge, which is also derived from the .300 Savage.Additionally, the 7.62x54R actually has a bullet diameter of 7.92mm, vs. the 7.8mm (.308 inches) of the .308 Winchester and 7.62x51.Another stark difference between the two is that the .308 is not a rimmed cartridge, instead using a cannlure.

The .308 Winchester and the 7.62 NATO cartridges are similar in size, but slightly different in chambering, thickness of the cartridge case, and pressures in loading. The 7.62 NATO cartridge may be safely fired in a .308 Winchester firearm. The reverse is not always true.
