It says FMJ but are they still bi-metal or steal core bullets? Couldn't find info.

As far as I know they're bi-metal (magnetic, copper coated steel jacketed) and leadcore.

I've been using this ammo and yes, it is corrosive.

Google is your friend. Search "Klimovsk 7.62 X 39" tons of user experience posted in forums, even some guy in youtube did a corrosive test.

Again, this is fun to shoot but you have to clean your rifle after every use.

If I remember correctly that was a year and a half ago and though many reported problems with a certain few batches, P12, P18 and P20, they really never detrermined it was truely corrosive. I know a lot of people that shoot this and they have no problems. Bryan at AIM had this ammo tested independently and it came back non-corrosive. Wolf had it tested and put out a notice about it saying it wasn't corrosive too. I'll be honest with you. I never shoot any Russian ammo, specifically berdan primed ammo, without cleaning the rifle as if it was corrosive anyway. I've also seen Widener's selling it recently with the statement these are new production batches coming in and have been tested non-corrosive.

Take note OP - This is my experience OK. First hand, real time, I am using this ammo. It is corrosive. NOT 2 years ago or 1 year ago. I'm talking about NOW. IT is Corrosive. I'm just letting everyone know. Be careful in using this ammo.

I'm just replying to a fellow calgunner who is asking about their experience with this ammo.

The website itself is another story. When you go check out - you're redirected to another website which is a red flag to me.

Just saying....

Fair enough, I've taken note though I never said I didn't believe you I was offering the only thing I know of about this ammo being corrosive. I didn't need to google this because I remembered that post and have it saved in my favorites from arfcom because I was following it as it was happening. Also because I deal with ammo all day, every day on gun-deals. We had that ammo listed on gun-deals when it was offered and I talked with Bryan about it as it was going down.
I also was offering my experience to a fellow calgunner which is I haven't heard of any problems with this being corrosive since that first incident. That is until now. I see this stuff listed on gun-deals by users and vendors all the time and no one has reported corrosive issues since last year. Not from any vendors which include AIM, SGAmmo, Widener's, AmmoMan, Ammunition Store, The Armory, Cope's Dist., AGS Armarment, J&G, Classic Arms, Ventura Munitions, Sportsman's Guide and this vendor. That's what's surprising. When did you buy it? Who did you buy it from and what is the lot number? There's also nothing to be worried about on that site. It's not redirecting you to another site. That's the secure checkout software. He's been a vendor on gun-deals for almost a year and a half. http://gun-deals.com/vendordeals.php...458&showExp=on no complaints so far.

Fair enough OP. Just voicing my opinion.

I bought mine from a fellow calgunner for $200 - 1000 rounds. Again, it is fun to shoot. It's LCB, so it is smooth, if you handled one.

Lot H22 H32 and it is coooooorooooosssive. 'nough said.

It's not just your opinion, it's your experience which is more than welcome. Just trying to put it in perspective. That being you have no idea really when it was made and might be part of the shipment that was sold last year. It was going for $199.99+sh last year so that makes sense. Might also explain why I haven't seen any more forum posts about the current stuff being corrosive. Wolf is importing this stuff and I really doubt they'd want to deal with what they went through last year. Though they stated it was tested as non-corrosive from their own testing, they exchanged a fair amount of it and refunded peoples money when they requested it.

it's possible the SKULS had something different?...

The ammo box in the OP link says "non-corrosive" right on it. I'm not sure why anything said anywhere would be more accurate than that.

He must have a different product because it clearly states "Non-Corrosive" right on the box. See attached image. I have never had any issues with this ammo. It's a good practice ammo and cycles properly!

LOL, my brain cells are still intact and working... It looks the same to me OK? The box may say non corrosive, but the ammo itself is corrosive.

Some of the links for your reading pleasure.

AGAIN, im not saying this is bad ammo, i just happen to get the lot/batch that is corrosive. OP may be correct that the ones i have may have been from last years where it was a problem and people were able to returned it and got refunded.

Why not just pay a penny more a round and get it from a more reputable place. Cabela's 1k round = $250+shipping, Sgammo $250+shipping.

He's been in the vendor's list on gun-deals for almost a year and a half and no one has listed any problems in the comments section. I know him pretty well and he's a good guy. His name is Tyler Bruner and I haven't heard of any problems myself either. http://gun-deals.com/vendordeals.php...458&showExp=on
