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.
