No, it does not. Once again, attempts to fire a cartridge in a firearm that is not chambered for that particular cartridge can prove lethal to the shooter. There are very few exceptions. Example, You can fire .44 special cartridges in a revolver chambered for the .44 Remington magnum. That is because the diameter of the projectiles is the same.

The .315 and the 7.62x64R are completely different cartridges.

No. One more time. You fire cartridges in the rifles designed for them. Not small, not big.
