    Pictures of milsurp case heads we shot in the carbine yesterday. I think they are all non corrosive. My old question is about the LC 52. How can you tell if ammo with that head stamp is genuine LC or from China?
    If there is even a doubt as to corrosiveness, I will clean with water.


    I will upload pictures of the other milsurp case heads I have for verification as well.

    Did you check out the Carbine Club link that I posted earlier? It discusses the differences between the legit Lake City and the Chinese ammo.

    Pull a bullet and look at the flash hole, the Chinese is berdan with two holes and USAicon ammo is Boxer with one. I think the Chinese is only LC 52. Anyone seen another year of manufacture stamp?

    I haven't, only LC 52 reported that I know of.
    Note the Larger Extractor Groove on the Chinese LC 52, easiest way to tell IMO.

    Based on the pictures you provided above I don’t believe any of my LC 52 are Chinese. That was just a quick look over. I will examine more closely later.

    So that would be corrosive?

    Yes, likely corrosive. I have read that there are 2 types of Frenchicon ammo corrosive and noncorrosive. Think this is mentioned in the CMPicon thread link I posted in post #22.
