Default AP Received Today

I received both my linked and loose AP today. The linked was all FA52 and the loose was AYR56 and TW54. I looked at the sticky thread regarding the AYR Corrosive chart and it looks like the jury is still out regarding AYR56. I don't have a lot # and thought I'd ask here if anyone has any updates. I suspect it's non-corrosive but wanted to confirm.

Seeing all that TW54 in the loose cans, you folks are starting to get me a little excited for my pending order.

My 10 cans should be here tomorrow. I still haven't finished sorting the last of the 36 cans I got last time. At least I won't have to worry about sorting any more ammo after that this year. Now I will have to start clipping the rest. 20 more cans to go.

MY 10 cans just arrived. Of the 10 cans 6 were US, one AYR, and 3 greek. The US cans were the rusty ones that Orest spoke of. The inside of the cans were fine though. One was one of those cans designed to fit on a MG mount. It was in excellent condition. The US cans seemed to have over 60-70% US made ammo in them. The greeks were mostly AYR 56 with a smattering of US made. Most of the US ammo was LC 53 and TW54. I did see a few RA43, RA44, and FA43 in the mix, but it was just a few. My sorting was a very unscientific grab two handfuls of each can for inspection. I am pleased to get so much US.
