Yugo M75 8mm Mauser corrosive?

Anyone get a chance to use this stuff, determine whether or not it is corrosive?
Wideners has a tolerable price on it, saying treat it as corrosive, but maybe not corrosive. A real bonus if not the nasty stuff. I'll be testing some in the coming days, 1st thru a 98. If GTG will finally have some plinking fodder for FN49.

You should really treat all European mil-surp ammo as corrosive. It's very easy to clean from shooting. I use Windex (ammonia) at the range, clean again that night, and one more time the next day and have never had a problem.

I generally do. This stuff was produced in the 90's, hoping for the best. I flat out refuse to run corrosive thru gas guns. To much work to clean, hard to get it all. FN newly re-barreled, old tube victim of corrosive ammo, neglect:( Have high hopes for this, want to keep it nice.

The M75 ammo is corrosive.

The Portuguese 8mm is non-corrosive, if you can find it.

Thanks GV. Good to know, not what I wanted to hear. Guess I'll be loading up on Windex:(

M75 ammo is really good stuff. Prints small groups from my rifles and recoil is much more mild in comparison to the 50s junk.

Definitely corrosive. I laid in 4 cases in '06, I've been shooting it since. My Mauser 98 leans up next to the back door, she's a real workhorse around here. I keep it loaded with non-corrosive Prvi Partizan ball so if I need to take a shot or two at something immediate cleaning isn't necessary.
