I think the Greeks stopped making corrosive ammo in the early 1960's.

Pull a bullet dump the powder and fire the empty case. Leave it sit for a couple days and see if anything turns green.

'75 Greek is non-corrosive and damned accurate plus great brass ! I've got a couple of cases and that's all my T gets fed. Regularly too !
