    So what do I really need to do once I shoot corrosive? I have heard everything from windex + water, to just water, to just windex.

    My SOP with corrosive ammo is windex when I finish shooting. then a good cleaning when I get home.

    I've heard that if you shoot several rounds of NC ammo afterwards you can go a couple days before having to clean :dunno: Something I may try with my Mosin next range trip shoot some surp then put a few rounds of wolf down the chamber and wait 3 days to clean.

    just water. the salts are polar, water is polar, like dissolves like.

    Wolf isn't corrosive, Most E. Bloc & WWII era milsurp stuff is corrosive.

    Shooting that "crap" is alot better then having to pay what it would cost for commercial ammo in some of my c&r calibers.

    My most recent purchases have been from AIM. Cheapness depends on caliber, right now they have Czech x54r $69.99 for 800 rounds. Occasionally I'll even prefer surp over commercial for example they have Bulgie 5.45 for $150 for 1080 rounds vs $147 for a case of Wolf, the bulgie stuff is much more consistent in performance.

    Got 440 7.62x54R for 50$ from my local gunshop.

    I've shot commercial, and I like the surplus better just because of the cool way it practically explodes on impact with anything thicker than paper.

    Yep spray it down the barrel around the chamber inside the reciever anywhere the corrosive salts could of ended up, down the gas tube if applicable.

    I used some ammonia cleaner last this first time after shooting. I put an earplug in the muzzle end and filled the barrel full of ammonia and let it sit for about 5 mins, then cleaned and scrubbed the hell out of it. No problems for me...

    Earplug is a good Idea. I usually spray windex down the barrel and get it everywhere.
