7.62x39, 5.56x45, 5.6x39, 5.45x39, 7.62x51, and 9x53R. Both 7.62x51 and 9x53R seems to be using the one side bulged trunnion, but we can't be sure.
I also threw in 7.62x54r, 6.5x52 Carcano, 6.5x54M.-Sch., and 6.5-284 Norma into the charts for comparison.
Edit removed 7.62x54r data too many diffrent pressure listings, but still dosn't effect things in regards to the 308 Vepr.
