Default French 30 Carbine Ammo?

Boxes dated 1961. Local gun shop has some boxes of French manufactured 30 Carbine ammo. Also included are stripper clips and the mag loader for the strippers.

Can forum members enlighten me about this ammo? Corrosive primed? Any other faults, or comments?

See responses to this same question under Ammunition heading. Stuff is bad news.

Yes corrosive. With plenty of current production .30 Carbine available I would not bother with this French ammunition.
