As thats even different calibre i think that that a typo in the localization and the wiki.
The wiki says its a 7.62x54 eventhough the config says 7.62x51

It's a hangover from 2015. When introduced to the game, the Rahim was originally 7.62x51, then they changed it 7.62x54.

And Zafir had this problem in 2015 also. Red fish memory?
