I am looking to do the same thing - then use it for deer, coyote, hogs, etc. I am on extremely tight budget these days and you cant beat the prices I've seen for these guns and their surplus ammo. Even if the ammo is corrosive, a simple cleaning when done takes care of that...

Don't use the corrosive stuff for hunting for sure..

Why not? The non expanding bullet is a problem, but were you thinking about something else?

Oh yeah, it wouldn't hurt it. My concern would be making a clean kill, that surplus ammo would likely zip right through with very little expansion.

IIRC it's just the primers that are corrosive...

Use the brown bear soft points from the previous page and you'll be fine. They're relatively cheap. You can get it for about $10 a box online. Or you can see if any stores carry it. It's non corrosive but you also can't reload for it either if you're into that. For re loadable stuff, you can try looking into some Winchester Metric Calibers soft points. Although that stuff runs closer to $25-30 a box.
