Does anyone have any idea whether this is corrosive or non-corrosive?

I am cleaning the rifle as if it is corrosive ammo.
When I cleaned my rifle, I did not notice any corrosion even though the rifle had sat for a couple of days after shooting it. Even so, I followed the threads' recommendation on corrosive cleaning.

What originally got my attention was, what appeared to be, heavier recoil with the Kynoch ammo. One of my buddies also noticed louder than normal muzzle report and an increase in muzzle flash. I'm glad I only put 16 rounds through the weapon.

Thanks for all the good feedback.
