Stalker- yes, it is, but I ran the magnification of the photo up a lot- that is FMJ. The label also says FMJ- surplus.

Can we see a picture of a primer that was struck but didn't fire?

Definately corrosive ammo. When I shoot corrosive I clean as usual then flush the bore with hot soapy water. You need the soap to cut the oily film left by cleaning. Then a couple dry patches followed by an oiled patch.

Repeat after 3-4 days if it's going to be a while before you get the gun out again.
