    Nothing much to tell.
    Chinese mil-sup ammo is almost 100% guaranteed to be corrosive primed.

    You just have to clean the salt out of the bore and the rest of the gun after firing it or it will rust badly.

    You can use Windex or hot soap & water.
    Then dry and clean again with petroleum based gun cleaning products and oil everything you washed the oil off of.

    This specialized gun cleaner also works well: http://www.rb-17.com/

    I've even used it to get the rust off some nooks and crannies where black powder fouling had gone without my knowing it. Worked like a champ.

    Go ahead & shoot them up! Just be sure to swab the bore at the end of the day. Nothing special, the fouling cleans out easy enough... But the way I look at it, You invest a lot of money in your tools & toys, you should clean them up before putting away anyway! Right? "DOC"

    On the plus side, corrosive primers will last longer than most of us. Nothing wrong with corrosive primers, just wash the barrel and bolt face with hot water when done shooting, dry, and clean and lube as normal.
