Looking for some cheap non-corrosive blasting ammo to shoot in 8mm semi-auto belt fed.

Tag, because I am too (but not for belted). I just bought 900 rounds I thought was non-corrosive. Another team member kindly corrected my misconceptions. It was 70's era ordered from AIM surplus.

I saw this the other day.

8mm

Not sure if it is corrosive, but a quick email to AIMs cust service should tell all. AIM is a decent company to deal with. I've never had a problem with their product, service, or shipping.


Edit: never mind. see above post

Yep, that's what I ordered. I thought it was boxer/non-corrosive, but another member corrected me.

I will say this, though: AIM has some of the very best customer service I have ever encountered. Polite, extremely friendly, and willing to bust ass to get you anything you need in a hurry.

Unless its commercial 8mm ammo, consider ALL 8mm surplus to be corrosive and clean accordingly.
