    The S&B is non corrosive... The Canadianicon surplus is corrosive primed. The S&B is commerical ammo. I've notice a lot of military surplus 303 coming in recently that is non corrosive... Such as the Germanicon MEN brand ammo and the Greek HXP. My LGS for whatever reason seems to be getting a lot of surplus 303 ammo in... where do they get it? I don't know. I bought my 1939 RL cupro there as well and most of my POFicon and 2 bandoliers (95 rounds) of GB 50 mk7. One bandolier for whatever reason was missing 5 rounds of the GB 50 303 and was replaced with Greek HXP 1969 dates ammo instead. I pulled those bandoliers out of a metal box... Not sure how long the metal box had been opened for though.
    Aussie in Missouri. Milsurps I have... bzn 4 K98k (non matching RC.)... 1942 Lithgow SMLE No.1 mk3* (matching)... 1942 Mosin M 91/30 (matching).... 1944 dot K98k (non matching)... 1952 fazakerley No.4 Mk.2 (matching)....WANTED- Swiss K31 and M1903a3.
