Yes, I would use it!

The only way I would not use it if the ammo has been wet at one time and it show rust on the brass. I have shot ammo that was loaded in WW2 and Korea.

the ammo,as long as the primers arent green and there is no rust/corrosion on it like Ford said should function fine.i shoot surplus ammo regularly that was made in the 60's and some that is even older.

There are a ton of people that shoot WWII milsurp ammo all the time. Just do your inspection and if it looks good let the shooting begin.

A couple months ago, I shot up a box of 22 long rifles in my Standard Double Nine that I bought in the sixties. Every one fired okay.

The gun that won the west wasn't registered
