Is it true, as I've been told, that this means it's got old-fashioned corrosive primer, even though it's labeled as non-corrosive? Or is it caused by the powder itself?

I've been using Wolf black box .30 cal in my M1 carbine, that I got in an extremely cheap deal. It shoots okay, no misfires or cycling problems, but it stinks like a cat box...

Is this stuff bad for my favorite Lil' Guy? Should I use the "corrosive" cleaning routine, a quick swab with sudsing ammonia before taking it home from the range for normal cleaning?

Corrosive primers use potassium chlorate, which should not create ammonia, if I remember my Chem. from 45 tears ago. All Wolf brand ammo is advertised as non-corrosive. Your carbine should be safe. Check the link.
