    Got the letter from Century that they are recalling all Red Army Standard Range ammo in 7.62x54R they are offering a 120% credit for other Century items or ammo. At least they are man enough to admit they messed up and (some) was corrosive. Hope folks get the news so they don't end up like me with ruined rifles because it was advertised as NON--CORROSIVE. It's too late for my 4-rifles less than 48 hours after I shot the stuff, hope others don't end up the same way. Hopefully earlier posts about it here got folks to be wary and clean well and not take the chance on it being corrosive.

    After 48 hours at worst you have some light surface rust, so clean the heck out of em and go shoot some more. Consider all 7.62X54R as corrosive and clean after every range trip and it wont matter.:)
