M2 Ball purchase

Hello ALL,
I know this horse has been flogged many times but I found and purchased a strange can (to me) of Lake City m2.
I need to know for sure it is non-corrosive and what year the ammo would be if you gentleman should know.
I have found the corrosive / non-corrosive charts and none go this high but what puzzles me is it is in "5 rd clips & Bandoleers"??
Pic tells all.
Thanks for any comments

Might just be me, but I don't see a pic. When I hover over the thread link I see a description of the pic link but I don't see one in the post.

I’m kinda new at this also but what it tells me is “LC” I think stands for Lake City and the “5 RD clips”are the stripper clips for a 1903 bolt action rifle. I can’t help on dating them or if they are corrosive.

Or the M1917 or BAR.
