On the ar platform you can swap out uppers. You can go from a 223/556 to a 7.62x39. if i am not mistaken is the 7.62x39 similar to the 308 or am i wrong still a newbie thanks

Know that the US went to 5.56 from 30 cal for a reason, look into this as well.
My understanding was that if they killed someone, the other soldiers would keep fighting, but if they wounded someone, the wounded would have to be attended to by medics and other personnel, and that would more effectively reduce the amount of time the battle would take to neutralize the threat.

It's everywhere. Super common ammo and you can get a thousand rounds or more for under 200 dollars.
I would say that this ammo is produced many places outside of Russia, so I wouldn't be concerned with sanctions.

.308 ammo is around $500 a case now (last time I bought it) and is too expensive for me to shoot much and stocking a few cases is pricey. .223 is way cheaper ammo.
