Yes.
But the primers used a mercuric and corrosive to your gun/barrel.
Clean with warm soapy water after shooting.
Don't let it sit.

Well, WW II ammo does have chlorate (corrosive) primers and should be cleaned with water, WW II or Korea vintage GI cleaner, or a black powder "solvent" all of which contain water to remove the potassium chloride salt. However, mercuric primers were dropped some time before WW II. A technicality, the cleanup is the same.

I just dropped by the web site in the link. Buying a case at a time, you're paying about $6 per 50 rounds. I doubt I'll buy any. I can load my own for that, and I won't have to wake up in the middle of the night, wondering if I got all that corrosive crap out of my beloved Kimber.
