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.

If you mean the SVD Sniper rifle manufactured by the Soviet Union, no, it is not a .50 caliber weapon. It fires a match grade version of the 7.62 X 54R cartridge- the same round used by the Moisin-Nagant 91/30 rifle (and the M38 and M44 Carbines). Wikipedia has a good concise article on the Dragunov sniper rifle. Enjoy.

By Soviet nomenclature, it's a sniper rifle. It should be in fact a marksman rifle by western standards, but it's definitely a MOA capable rifle in the hands of a competent shooter and with the correct ammunition.
