I own a Remington 760 carbine in .308 Win and a Remngton Model 7 in .223.
Can I safely shoot military surplus 7.62 NATO or 5.56mm in tese rifles?

It depends

The links below discuss the differences between the .308 Win. and 7.62mm NATO. The second link talks about the .223 Rem and the 5.56mm and some potential concerns. Interesting reading so you can draw your own conclusions. Hope this helps. All the best...
