Chinese,1987 production.

I'm still checking to find out if its corrosive and steel core,someone who already knows may be along soon.

Would it help if I try to pull the bullet out? I can just use a plier to pull it out right?

That certainly looks alot like all the steel core I ever bought, except I don't see the sealant around the case mouth. Only way to be sure is to pull a bullet and scratch the exposed metal at the base.

Consider all Chinese ammo as corrosive...if in doubt, shoot a few rds, recover the cases, and after a couple of days there should be small specks of rust around the primer flash holes. Hope this helps...Tommy.

What's the best way to pull the bullet out?? I don't have any proper tools. Is trying this okay??

It was hard, but I twisted the sh!t out of it and it finally came out.



I was able to scrape off a thin layer of lead from the circle part to find something hard and shiny.



So what do you guys think??

Take a nail and scratch the metal in the center of the base of the bullet where the jacket is open. If it scratches easily it's lead. If it's hard it's steel. You will know immediately. Let us know.

It is steel. What are they worth?

I haven't bought any in so long that I wouldn't know .

They are worth around 15.00 to 20.00 a box of 20. I have seen them go on Gunbroker recently for 20.00 a box. If your selling them i'd be very interested in in getting some from you.

At a buck a piece I'm rich. But not as rich as Neutrino45.
