You can determine if the primer is corrosive easily enough and no one will be guessing. Take a piece of mild steel and polish a surface. Remove the bullet and powder from a cartridge and while holding the muzzle of your rifle a few inches from the steel, fire only the primer against the polished area. Let it sit overnight and see if rust forms on the steel.
DO NOT wait overnight to clean your rifle!
