Can anyone tell me what kind of ammo this is and if it's corrosive. It's 30-06 FMJ in a green bandolier on 5-rd strippers. Headstamp is "HXP 72".

Thanks,
PAC

It's Greek, manufactured in 1972. No idea if it's corrosive, but until you prove it's otherwise, treat it like it is. HTH.

Thanks!

If anyone knows for sure if this stuff is corrosive or not, I'd appreciate the info.

Greek Powder and Cartridge Company.

If you don't know if it is corrosive or not, then it is.

I know to treat uncertain ammo as corrosive, but if I can find out either way, all the better.

I found this so far: http://www.100megsfree4.com/airground/ammo/greekamm.htm

It says not corrosive, but I don't think I'll rely on that.
