I have a chance to buy some old Norinco ammo at a reasonable price, any one know what type of

case? laquer, copper washed etc?
and type of bullet boattail, flat steel core?
Corrosive?

One box is green and says Exported by China Jing Equipment Lead core
2nd type is black/white box China Sports 7.62x39 soft point
3rd Type is Norinco in a yellow box

I think you will find all of it is copper washed case. I would treat all of it as corrosive. Generally speaking it is good ammo. If you can pick up that yellow box for $.20 per round or perhaps a bit more, I would get it.

The soft points may not feed reliably in all AKs.

It can be copper washed or brown lacquer cased- I have seen both.

Corrosive or not, steel core or not, all depends on the headstamp...
