Default Outside Target Practice

I have always gone to the range to shoot, so I've never purchased target ammunition. But I have a friend who lives out in the country, so I can shoot at his house now.

When ammunition is labeled as non-corrosive, does that mean it's safe to shoot outside? This is specifically what I'm looking at:

It means the powder/primer isnt corrosive on your gun.

You can shoot corrosive or non corrosive ammo outside. All ammo used to be corrosive hence why the importance of cleaning your firearm after each range visit was so important. Not so much so now due to more advanced technology and the development of newer powder but I still recommend it. You are good to go sir

Smokeless powder is not corrosive. Most Eastern Bloc ammo is corrosive. US ammo pre-1950 was likely corrosive. It has nothing to do with where you can shoot it. It has everything to do with how you clean up afterwards.
