Did you load it with .22L (Long) or .22 LR (Long Rifle)? As long as the bolt opens rearward or can be removed, you should be able to safely remove the cartridge by gently running a cleaning rod down the barrel to push it out the breach. If the bolt will not open at all now, do not try to force it...take it to a gun shop/gun smith.

Difference between 308 and 7.62?

The .308 Winchester and the 7.62 NATO cartridges are similar in size, but slightly different in chambering, thickness of the cartridge case, and pressures in loading. The 7.62 NATO cartridge may be safely fired in a .308 Winchester firearm. The reverse is not always true.
