We used some a short while back at the SO when we shot our issued M14's. 1 out of ever 100 or so rounds failed to fire.

I don't know why this was. I guess that's why it's labeled TRAINING ONLY and costs so little. Plan on some fail to fires.

500 rounds for $119?

That's $238 per 1000--there are much better deals to be had on .308.

For 1000 they offer it at $209.97

I have seen ammo for less but it is corrosive or the primer is( Berdan Primed), not sure what they mean by that. Does that mean the primer is corrorsive?

No. it means the primer is crimped (as opposed to boxer priming)
Most .mil brass is berdan primed.
Harder to reload - but it can be done.
Check out Dillon Precision for the berdan primer remover.

I have shot over 1 thousand rounds of the LC XM80 with only one issue...a primer was installed upside down on one of the cartridges. Huge muzzle flash with the Lake City XM80.

Berdan primed has nothing to do with crimped or not.
Berdan and Boxer are the two major types of priming, Boxer is more common with American ammo, has the one flash hole in the center. Berdan is more common with foreign countries and has two small flash holes which makes it more difficult to reload. Not impossible but not as convenient as Boxer style.

Both primer types can be corrosive as well, primer type is not an indicator of corrosive or non corrosive.
Crimped primers can be Boxer or Berdan, just a common technique on military ammo to keep the primer from blowing back and causing problems.
