Gevelot 150 gr. 30.06 FMJ ammo

Hello Team!
Question, for the ammo gurus...
Is anyone familiar with Gevelot 150 gr. 30.06 FMJ ammo?
I have an opportunity to buy some locally at about $0.35 per round. It looks shiny, bright and new.
Gevelot 150 gr. 30.06 FMJ ammo already linked in 1919A4 BMG metal disintegrating links. Headstamped 7.62 Mod 49. This batch is from the 1980's - 1990's. It IS NOT the 1950's CRAPPOLA! Corrosive primers.

What do you​ think? Any good? It would be for Garands.
Thanks in advance.

I have to say, I had not even heard of that brand until now.

Can you post photos ?

IIRC a lot of French ammo was corrosive into the 1970's, maybe beyond that.

I recall there was 1980s surplus French 06 for sale in the 90s that was advertised as corrosive.
