I know theres been a lot of threads like this but i would like to know if the ammo i bought is corrosive or not.
The ammo looks exactly like the kind on this website, id put the headstamp down but i can't read it. http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinAmmo003.htm

I found a round that had a good stamp. It says on the rim "b x n" then "85" below it. I dont know if that changes anything. The ammo that i posted doesn't have a stamp.

If it's Milsurp always treat it like it's corrosive.

I usually clean my rifles out ASAP after shooting milsurp....But that stuff is definately corrosive and has to be cleaning very soon after shooting.

Nothing wrong with corrosive ammo. Just flush out with water as soon as you get home. Dry out, and clean and lube as normal.

Yes, all Russian surplus 7.62x54R is corrosive. I find that after promptly cleaning as usual a last pass with Windex and then a dry patch seems to work rather well.
