Overall the Korean ammo is good stuff. Watch the headstamps... KA is corrosive and PS is non-corrosive. There were a few lots of PS that were trouble. I don't have that list though. There is no problem firing corrosive ammo if you clean your weapon accordingly.

Based on my experiences I'd pass on French ammo if you come across any. Most had poor quality brass that can rupture on firing. And I'm not sure if it is M1 compatible. The stuff I had was Mdle. 1949 or something close to that. Bad stuff!!!

Hope this helps.
