Brass-cased surplus 7.62 Ammo (most seen are steel) and the squeaky-cleanest I've ever seen! 182-gr. FMJ boattail bullet, Berdan-primed, non-corrosive, non-reloadable.
Approx. Muzzle Velocity: 2,600 F.P.S. Approx. Muzzle Energy: 2,732 ft.-lbs. 15 rds. / box
That's gotta be a typo. I'd treat it as if it were corrosive.
SG advertises some ammo as "slightly corrosive"

440rd spam can ammo also uses brass cases, Berdan-priming, is cheaper and more convenient for storage

The newer Serbian (post-Yugo) Prvi Partizan .303 ammo is Non-corrosive.

If your Yugo or Czech ammo is at a really low price and from the 60s like mine, it is corrosive.

From the label, it looks like this may have been loaded in 2002.
