No.

FWIW, it's the primer, I believe, that is the difference between corrosive and non-corrosive.

There is a lot of information on the Internet about ammo head stamps and packaging. If you poke around a bit with that information you'll probably find out beyond a reasonable doubt if it's corrosive or not.

For example, I recently picked up a 1/2 dozen boxes of 308/7.62x51 ammo in light green boxes and the cartridges have head stamp .308W OO 82. A couple minutes browsing around with that head stamp info suggests the ammo is most likely corrosive.

Way too many pages to go back...

Can anyone offer insight into the various M1A .30 Carbine manufacturers? I'm looking to get one of these rifles really soon. I've been watching Gunbroker pretty closely and it seems like the difference in prices between the manufacturers is fairly wide. I'm not looking for authenticity or resale value, just functionality. Specifically, Plainfield and Universal seem to be the best values. Is there any reason not to go with them, considering that this gun will likely see less than 100 rds per year?

My backup plan is the Citadel M1A .22 version. Any advice on that one? I'm considering setting myself up with a .22 semi-auto rifle and a handgun then stocking up on that one round.

Good luck getting .22 bullets. They are as rare as hens teeth around here

Yeah I can't find them anywhere online! Thankfully I have a little over 500 rds on hand. Current conditions not-withstanding, .22 will always be the cheapest round though. I'm leaning towards the .30 carbine anyway. The reason I'm purchasing this firearm calls for a larger round.

It's all in who you know. I didn't ask about .22lr. I've got a few boxes of 9mm on the way. Not hoarding, just picking up some to shoot here soon.

9mm can be found, but it's expensive. I get most of my 9MM from work so I'm not worried about that. I don't have a ton, but definitely enough. If I pick up this .30 carbine I'm going to probably make a bulk purchase of that.

I got lucky and a wholesale source found me.
