7.62x54R non-corrosive?

Ammoman is selling spam cans of 7.62x54R from Russian and the description says this is non-corrosive. I assume this is older surplus, which may not be the case. Can anybody here tell from the pictures when this was manufactured and more importantly do you know when/if Russia changed to non-corrosive primers?

I already have a crate of what I assumed to be corrosive ammo for my Mosin but I sure wouldn't mind have a crate of non-corrosive if that is what this stuff really is.

My understanding (i may be wrong) is the primer is the corrosive part, atleast the salts used in the primer, not the powder. The link you posted shows
Powder: Non-Corrosive
Primer: Berdan Corrosive

So it will be corrosive, i dont think any milsurp 7.62x54r was or ever will be non-corrosive.

Thanks Tarant for politely pointing out that I didn't read the entire ad. I saw non-corrosive and stopped reading.

So this looks like more of the same stuff that I already have.

No problem man, happens to me all the time.

If you want non corrosive, you will have to go with new production ammo like Hornady steel match, Prvi Partizan, Brown/Silver Bear, But its expensive compared to the milsurp stuff.

I wonder how much corrosion a mercuric primer would cause?
