A. For some purposes, the Chinese use a different calendar system for numbering years.
B. The 60A is for Arsenal 60A at Kaohsiung, a post city in southern Taiwan. Can you say 7th Fleet? I knew that you could.

GI bore cleaner is designed to clean after corrosive ammo firing.
If all that was mine I would disassemble and reprime them all with new non corrosive #34 primers but then I am retired and have nothing else to do.

The Arsenal 60 stuff uses a non-standard Boxer primer that is a few thousandths over sized. Large primers fall out. Two years at Ching Chuan Kang (CCK) AB near lovely down town Taichung.

Pop Quiz for the group: Where could you find the "Bar Twon" sign?

even easier way - get a bunch of primed cases ready and use a collet puller to pull the bullet from these corrosive rounds, dump the powder from the case into a non-corrosive primed case, replace the now charged case on the press and re-seat the bullet that's still in the collet. Easy as pie and you're good to go.

I transfer the powder and bullet to a fresh primed case.
To pull bullets easily run the round thru a bullet seating die set a little short to break the sealant in the neck. Then the collet pulls them out quickly.
Depriming corrosive primed cases is reasonably safe if you use slow steady pressure. Use a universal decapping die for this step. If a primer does go off (I have had 2 or 3 pop when I get in a hurry) the space around the case vents the gas down so no injury to you.
As JPM says prime up a lot of clean cases. If you reuse your old cases you need to ream the primer pocket to clear the crimp. Lots of work but fun

Much easier to just shoot it then clean the gun, remember during WW2 all they shot was corrosive ammunition.

Because they were at war not shooting paper targets. We have plenty of time to clean our guns after shooting. Corrosive ammo shooting just requires a little more time and work when cleaning the gun. I have shot a lot of corrosive out of my .45's with no problems.
