Got some brass-cased FMJ, head stamp is "FN" "48". I reckon this Fabrique Nationale made in 1948. I know, I know treat all milsurp as corrosive. Just wondered if anyone out there knows definitively whether it is or not (DocAv?).

Thanks guys.

I'm pretty sure FN production was corrosive into the mid-1950s. As a matter of fact, I had some FN 52 that was corrosive.

usually anything pre 1960 (I think ) is corrosive, but based on the head stamp of " 48" meaning it's from 1948 I'd say there's a really good chance (maybe 95.7, lol)
