FA 42 headstamp - corrosive ?

Hi guys,

I picked up some 30-06 brass at the show over the weekend. It is in great shape and the price was right - 2.00 for 50.

I got it home and was going to start prepping it and noticed it is primed. Looks like the original primer, since the crimp is still in place. I am not about to load with 63 year old primers.

Before I started to get rid of these and swage the crimp out I have a couple of questions:

Are the primers from RA 42 corrosive and what are the chances they are still live ? If so, any idea on the best way to deprime ?

Thanks in advance for any insight
