All TW cal. .30 ammunition made after 1952 is non-corrosive. There is a sticky thread in this sub-forum which lists the cutoff dates for U.S. corrosive ammunition....

Yes, mhb has it right. All TW 30.06 Ball ammo made after Lot #19362, December 1950 is non-corrosive. First totally safe head stamp is TW 51.

For TW AP, Lot numbers after 19776 with a date of February 1952 is non-corrosive. First totally safe head stamp for TW AP is TW 53.
