Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I picked up wooden crates and have a question.

These have a red seal paint on the primer, does that mean its corrosive ?
Unfortunately yes. With the gas system in an AR its going to be a lot of cleaning to get all the corrosive salts out and in some places impossible without putting the rifle in a bucket of hot soapy water.

Both are 7.62x54 Russian. The ammo in the green box is Czech and the silver tip means light ball. The yellow tipped on the other ammo usually means its heavy ball ammo. I'm not sure what nation that' ammo is from. The Czech ammo is very good surplus ammo.

The Yellow tip is Hungarian if from the case pictured earlier in the thread (green case with yellow stripe).

That ammo looks nice and clean.

Heavy ball is hard to find now days! Some people like it for longer range shooting and some guns were sighted in for it. How true this is I am not sure as I suck at long range shooting without a scope. Fun to shoot in a Carbine, nice fireball!

The YUGO 7.62x39 is good ammo but corrosive, clean accordingly.

Back during the insanity, we sold a bunch of it and found some with green seal on the primers. It turned out to be boxer primed non corrosive! We put it on gunbroker for $1 a case and eventually sold for over $600 😳
Wow, thats crazy!
