It says non-corrosive...
Until you can establish it for certain I would just assume it's corrosive to be safe. In another thread somebody bought some 7.62x39 that was marked "non-corrosive" that turned out to be corrosive, the box style and lettering look somewhat similar to yours. I know you said yours is made in Ukraine and this other stuff is Russian made, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

I've been running Russian 5.45 thru mine, exclusively, hose it out (with water) before I clean it. I have still seen rust inside the flash suppressor, tho. NOT an issue, I can replace that flassh suppresor, easily enough. Make sure you run water thru the barrel, tho. That'll kill the corrosive aspect...

Boy, you were right about this ammo being corrosive. I did a nail test with one and that nail was rusty within two days. I mean REALLY rusty. If anyone else buys this ammo, clean your guns well!!!!

Glad I was able to give you a heads up, I'd hate see anybody rust up a nice firearm thinking they had "non-corrosive" ammo. As soon as I saw the picture of your ammo box it reminded me of the other thread where the guy bought some 7.62x39 marked non corrosive that turned out not to be. I just hate corrosive ammo if you can't tell...LOL Anyhow, I'm glad you know what you've got now.
