Also, all M1 Carbine US mil ammo is non-corrosive.
The reason for my post was that I think the friend was probably referring to corrosive primers and not "modern gunpowder". Nothing I said is in conflict with your post above. Commercial does lead the government, since they want those contracts and they want their products to be better and more competitive. The dates I provided are useful in that if you know your ammo was made after X, you know without doubt that it is non-corrosive. If not, you need to do research.

Reread what the friend said.

The friend said the MODERN ammo would cause corrosion.

What you said was accurate. The friend is/was clueless.
