    The surplus 5.45X39 ammo that AIM sells, is it corrosive?

    Its usually advertised as corrosive so I treat it like it is.

    Says it is but it probably won't ruin your gun if you don't clean immediatly. We've ran 2k rounds through a Krink in a month without cleaning and no problems. I think half was Russian and the other half was Bulgarian surplus.

    I've been buying the ammo that Southern Ohio Gun sells that seems identical to what AIM lists as WASP. They list it as non-corrosive.

    If it's surplus and you're not 100% positive that it's NOT corrosive, then treat it as such.
