bought 500 rounds of this last fall, haven't shot any yet. Wondering where it's from, if it is corrosive, and if it's worth a damn. Thanks in advance.

It's from the Middle East - either Arabic or Farsi.
If it's arabic I can prolly tell you what the box says.

Arabic and farsi use the same "script" alphabet more or less.
I'm no fluent speaker, I glanced at the pic, couldnt make much out cause I had to twist my head.
Picture was upside down so I had to save it and flip it.
The AIQ (ammo in question) is from Egypt.



ETA: should read Factory 27, not 26.

It is corrosive primed ammo.

Thanks for the info guys. So, has anyone used this ammo? Is it good quality stuff(besides being corrosive)? And by the way, what is the proper procedure for cleaning after shooting corrosive ammo?

There is no need for ammounia,windex,hot water,or voodoo chants to clean corrosive residue out of a firearm. While the CLP doesn't nutralize the corrosive residue it does disolve it and the brake parts cleaner washes it out. I have used CLP and brake parts cleaner to clean all my firearms for almost 20 years now. CLP has worked very good as a Cleaner,Lubricant,and Preservative.


To clean a AK rifle go to Wal-mart and get from these depts.

Sporting goods dept.
A pump spray bottle of Break-Free CLP www.break-free.com/
A 30cal and a 20 gauge bore brushes

Automotive dept.
A can of brake parts cleaner
A set of brushes or brush with brass or steel brissles. like this
www.woodcarvingstore.com/RotaryToolAccessories/CleaningBrushes.asp

Housewares dept.
roll of paper towels

Drug dept.
A new tooth brush.

When you get home swap out your new tooth brush for your old one.Spray down all the parts of your rifle with CLP and let it sit for 15 minuites. Use your old tooth brush to scrub the inside of the receiver and parts. Use the brass/steel brush on the gas piston. It will take several applications of CLP and scrubbing to get heavy amounts of carbon off the gas piston. A wire wheel in a electric drill can be used to cut down on the amount of scrubbing needed. Use the 30cal brush on the bore and the 20 gauge brush on the gas tube/gas block. Once clean put 4 paper towels in the bottom of the bag you brought the stuff home from Wal-mart in. Hold the parts over the bag and use the brake parts cleaner to rinse everything off. Brake parts cleaner removes everything and leaves no residue. Spray a 4"x4" piece of rag and one patch with CLP. Rub the rag on every part inside and out to lube/protect it and run the patch through the bore. Put the rag and patch in a zip lock bag to use the next time you clean your rifle. Make sure to wipe the gas piston and the inside of the gas tube and gas block. The CLP will get into the pores of the metal and not let the carbon stick tight. So the next time you clean your rifle the brass/steel brissle brush will not be needed only the tooth brush. Take the bag with the paper towels which have absorbed all the brake parts cleaner and dirt outside or in the garage to let the bpc evaporate then throw it away.
