I was given about 38 if these WCC `58 .308 military bullets and was ready to shoot them then my fil mentioned that they might be corrosive primers. I asked a group on Facebook a while back with no definite answer. Any help would be appreciated. I would hate to assume they are, pull all the bullets and find out they were not.
Note: All 7.62 mm NATO manufactured in this country is NON Corrosive – EXCEPT 1956
"International Match Ammunition" manufactured by Frankford Arsenal (produced at the same
time as the FA .30-’06, 1956 International Match Ammunition)! This ammunition is usually
found in Arsenal White Boxes marked "International Match" with FA and the appropriate lot

Agreed. US manufacture military ammo has not had corrosive primers since about 1952, with the exception of a very limited number of National match rounds. The little cross and circle indicates NATO standard loading. Good ammo.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
