Default Yugo 7.62 x 39 Definitely Corrosive. Clean Accordingly! Rust suggestions please.

I've seen statements that it's "Mildly" corrosive. I've even shot some over the years but always cleaned up accordingly. A buddy of mine shot some a few months ago, forgot to clean his Mini 30 (after I TOLD him it was corrosive ammo, and how to clean it...)

Well, we took it out yesterday to go shooting and the op rod was frozen with rust to the piston. Finally got it knocked loose with a wooden block and hammer, then inspected the barrel.....OH THE HORROR!!!

He'll be lucky to be able to salvage the barrel IMHO. We're gonna do the Kroil soak, then run SS scrubber wrapped around a nylon brush through the bore to see if it will clean up.

Any other suggestions? YUGO IS CORROSIVE....Period! Hope this helps someone that reads this from the same fate! c good

I have heard some say, "mildly corrasive is like say a little pregnant". Either it is or it's not, either your pregnant or your not! Good luck cleaning it, hope your buddy is able to salvage that mini.
Live free or die trying!
