Hi folks new to the PU.
Hope I’m posting in right spot? My question starts an Ol timer that lived next door to me a few years back gave me some Russian 7.62x39 white box
Marked hp 8 l.c.b made to hunting specs.
Non-corrosive, and markings on side of box KNC inside of a Bullet? Anyone have any knowledge of these?

No sir I don't The bulk of traffic is on the mini 14/mini30. Those guys may be able to enlighten us?

I think I may have found my answer, did some searching on net. Was taking a break on consolidating al my ammo from what I found supposed to be pretty decent rounds.

Probably very good rounds.

Probably not corrosive, but without knowing for sure, better to clean as though it were.

There are some people whose comments I have come to distrust.

I bought a few cases of these in the 1990's when i had an ffl. The wholesaler stated that these were "mildly" corrosive. So yes it is corrosive. Clean your rifle like your life depends on it after each firing session.

I’ll treat them as corrosive, better to play it safe when it comes to that,

Yes, corrosive primers. Basically just standard mil spec that has steel jacket or core, OTM bullets, not FMJ, thus the "loaded to hunting specs." Good shooting ammo, but steel cased, and bullet attracts a magnet.

The cases themselves will tell the answer pretty well. So fire, clean as corrosive, and save some cases out of the weather. Monitor for speed of corrosion. And let us know what ya found and how they shoot.
