    There was some 60's French carbine ammo made with corrosive primers, but I can't remember where I saw the information right now. If you're planning on burning this up, I'd check around to see what I could find out. Corrosive priming will really screw up the gas system of a Carbine.

    All the French Carbine ammo was corrosive and Berdan primed...This is collectors ammo... The USA supplied the French with plenty of M! Carbines and the French produced two (2) Carbines chambered for this round in the 60s neither were produced in any quanity, only expirmental for military trials....BILL
