From what I have read in the GCA article(Summer 2012) the Air Force Premium Grade were chambered in both 30-06 and 7.62mm. The rifles at the NS were just barrels that were marked NM between the gas cylinder rings and polished in the date area of the barrel and chambered in 30-06. The polished area is the clue that these passed through the AF.
