1) Ethiopian 7.62x51mm, $94.99 per can of 280 rds.

Ad says they were told it's non-corrosive, but FN M2 ball as late as '57 or so has been reported as corrosive. Caveat emptor.

That's not the cleanest FN ammo I've seen, but the stripper clips are great and I also agree there is a very high likelihood it's corrosive if it's pre-57. The stuff I have (FN57) shoots great in my 03s, but I never shoot corrosive ammo through my FN49 or Garands.

I'd really like one of those FN ammo cans!

FWIW I've had about 50% click booms with the FN stuff, but reasonable accuracy.

Yep, FN MUST BE 1958 or newer to be noncorrosive.

CMP-sold API with FN55 headstamp personally tested by me and confirmed non-corrosive. I also shot through a batch of FN 57 stamped Ball M2 that was confirmed non-corrosive.

That ammo in the sgammo link looks too degraded to bother with.

Same here. Bought and shot 60 rounds. It was worth it to me as plinking ammo to get the stripper clips.

Did you include a “positive control” (known corrosive primer) in your testing?

Of course!!!! As well as some good old LC. Not my first go at testing primers, by a long shot.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet.
