I never really wanted to let them sit to figure it out for myself

I once had an M1 Garand that I shot Korean surplus through, (supposedly non-corrosive), and when I went to clean it about 2 weeks later the barrel was pretty heavily rusted. Made it a good candidate for a .308 conversion.

from my own experience of shooting a CZ52 with the romy corrosive, rusted the inside of the barrel after 2 or 3 days.

2-3 days usually for me, but it depends on the ammo. I know the 50s yugo 8mm is really bad maybe 1 day after that you'll get rust, but teh romanian 8mm ammo maybe 3 days.

Usually, when i shoot my mosin M44 i don't bother cleaning it till later that night when watching TV.

It always comes out shiny and clean

At a minimum just squirt some Windex with ammonia down the bore at the range, followed by water (to wash out the ammonia), a dry patch to dry the bore and an oiled patch.
All that should take about 5 minutes and will save your bore.

In rainy weather, over-friggin-night. Out in the desert you can get by with more I'd guess, but I wouldn't.
