Hope I am not breaking forum rule here, but I thought there must be knowledgeable people here for my question. At a gun show today I bought two spam cans of 7.62x51 ball ammo (unopened). I was told they were Chinese. The cans were zinc-coated, stamped "7.62x51", "BALL", "520 rounds", and "12-96-01"

If they are Chinese, I assume they have copper washed steel shell. Are they corrosive? 147 gr?

Thanks in advance
