I started out in shotguns where corrosive ammo is never mentioned as a concern. Now I'm looking at 9mm and 45 acp pistols and I keep hearing about dumb newbies who buy corrosive ammo. Well, I'm a dumb newbie so I figure it's just a matter of time.

First, what is corrosive ammo? What is non-corrosive? Why is it to be avoided, and does it serve any purpose?

Second, how do I avoid corrosive ammo? Are there certain brands to avoid, or dates of manufacture, or some kind of distinction on boxes or casings?

Thanks from a confoozled newbie. BTW, I'm finding the newbie reloader thread fascinating. Keep the advice coming!
