    Are you paying more or less than $300?

    "Sealed tin" makes me lean towards corrosive.

    Not a problem. I've got a little Yugo 7.62x39mm that's corrosive. It's just a couple of extra steps to clean your rifle and you'll need to clean it a couple of hours after you shoot it. No biggie. ;)

    if it's foreign made most likely corrosive primed - if steel cased it certainly is. the yugo brass is corrosive too.
    windex is a good cleaner for. spray down dripping wet and scrub some.
    make sure to get piston/tube.
