I think the fact is corrosive will turn away a lot of shooter. The norweign makes decent barrel, so i would only speculate this ammo is of decent quality as well. Heck, for .55/rnd, i would shopt it for a rack grade.

Have not fired any of this, but generally fire corrosive ammo, except for GP11. Doesn't put me off in the least.

I won't use it in my M1, but I was wondering about accuracy and brass quality for bolt action use.

I see the CMP also has more milsurp boxed Greek ball now, too.

If the Garand has a gas port, i may try it. But since its unfeasible to clean the gas cylinder after every trip, it will only benefit the bolt gun.

__________________________________________________ ________________

The corrosive part about corrosive ammo is a VERY SMALL amount of salt in the primer.
To do any real damage to an M1 you have to fire a large amount of ammo and then leave the rifle in a humid or wet environment, like a battlefield.

If you have DRY storage you can leave the rifle for extended periods without any problems. Then clean it with soapy water or a cleaner that is marked for corrosive like the old WWII GI cleaner.

I once bought 1000 rounds of boxer primed M1 ammo and shot it for over a year with only once cleaning the gas system. Garands still in the same condition as I got it.

Don't spread this around cause I still get corrosive ammo from guys that think their M1 will dissolve if they shoot it.

Thanks from luigi, Okra, Rich D and 1 others

I remember scrubbing our M14 barrels in the hot shower after firing blanks. The main thing after cleaning was hit it with very hot water right before drying with a towel. I don't remember what we did with the other parts, though. It may have been buckets of hot water with Cheer.

Exactly, corrosive ammo will completely dissolve your M1, so don't buy any of this - best to just send it all to me for safekeeping so no one inadvertently fires any of it.

I purchased several cases of armor piercing 30-06 from the CMP years ago. CMP listed it all as corrosive. After testing the AYR that many people received, it was found non-corrosive. The AYR was manufactured in the mid 1950 where much of the new manufacture was non-corrosive. If you purchase it you may want to test it to be sure.

I bought some ammo from Midway loaded in en-bloc clips, boxer primed and the box is dated 24 Feb 1969 .30inch MK 4 Z. I keep 1 box back unopened. They all fired and were fairly accurate. I haven't decided if I am going to reload them since I have only a couple hundred brass. It did not affect my M-1, but I cleaned every time I shot those rounds. Good luck. You can always send a E-mail to the CMP about the item in question.

The markings appear that it is from Pakistan.

CMP is probably calling it corrosive so they don't get complaints. I think most of the testing leaned to non corrosive on the AP, but some felt is may have been mildly corrosive. This was all done by individuals, not scientific. It's magnetic so kind of irrelevant to us out west anyway.

Thanks from Jackson

I thought AYR was Berdan, but the guys that tested it back when the AP was available found it not corrosive, although CMP called it corrosive. Never shot any of the AP, I left the stuff in the wooden crate


Just went over to CMP forums, they are saying the early AYR is corrosive, its a matter of when it was made. Reading also confirms my memory that the ammo is Berdan

Really I just got the email.

Oh well, a broke college student with 3 kids say I can't buy any anyway.
