    It's from a foreign country............

    You might try some of the milsurp sites if you don't find out anything here.

    I'd call that phone number and ask them. 591-1100? Sorry I have nothing useful to add.

    Looks like Swiss surplus ammo. Very accurate stuff. I want to say it's around $1 a shot but don't hold me to that.

    Treat it like it's corrosive and shoot it... Just flush the barrel and any exposed metal with warm soapy water, and then clean as normal. It's the compounds in the Berdan primer that creates corrosive salts when burnt. Clean your gun more like you would a Black Powder gun and you will be fine. As far as reloading, if it's boxer primed, and brass cased chances are pretty good it can be reloaded. If it is Berdan primed, it would be a lot of hassle to reload, and probably not worth your trouble.

    G11 is non corrosive. The best milsurp ammo ever made. You'll see guys shooting it in the vintage matches at Perry.60 round packs were (I said were) about $40 before this latest nonsense.

    Yep, Swiss GP11. Some of the finest service ammo ever loaded. 174 grain bullet, Berdan primed. And yes, it is noncorrosive. Current value is about 50-60 cents a round, that's the price I found over the weekend.
