7.62x54R surplus Q.

Picked up a couple of boxes of what looks like 7.62R steel cased military surplus rounds in blue/green boxes with a silver stripe across the front and was wondering if any one knew if they were corrosive or not.

With 7.62x54 surplus ammo, odds are high that it is corrosive. Can you tell us more about the headstamp? Does it have a date code? This will help identify what you have.

most Russian/Soviet ammo is corrosive and crappy...
woudlt use in anything but a Russian military rifle which generally speaking can take it heh
