Actually, the Russian is .311, and the .223 Remington is .224 I believe(?).
True, but the various slightly more than .308 cartridges (7.62x54, 7.62x39, .303, etc.) are still referred to as .30 caliber, not .31 caliber. While the actual bullet size of the .223 cartridge is .224", it is still a .22 caliber along with the .22-250 and others.

This discusion is extremely frivolous, and is sidetracking the thread. If my ( very minor ) mislabeling bothers you that much, I'll go back and edit it. But please stop sidetracking the thread.
