Default 1961 HXP Is It Corrosive ?

I was out North Store yesterday, Got two cans of 200 rds loose. In the one can was 10 rounds of WRA 1945 and in both cans was about 15 rounds of 61 HXP. I know the WRA is corrosive , what about the 1961 HXP ? It has the old style rounded type primers like you see in corrosive WWII Ammo. Don't want to shoot it through my Garand, if it is. The rest of the ammo was a mixture of all HXP of different years. If someone could give me an answer on that 61 HXP I would appreciate it. Thanks.

1961, Maybe this will help I did see old add from Aimsurplus which showed HXP61 as non corrosive on stripper clips. I feel sure if they say its not corrosive its good to shoot.

No. But even if it was the Garand was made for it.

I don't know if it's corossive or not, but to be on the safe side, just keep it with your WRA 1945 ammo. Shoot it all together and clean your rifle as if it was all corrossive. Problem solved.

None of the HXP we have been getting is corrosive.
