Maybe, Maybe, Yes. It is possibly corrosive, possibly not. I haven't heard anything definitive. It is possibly reloadable, as long as it is brass. It is definitely berdan primed, which makes the reloadable question a question. Can you find berdan primers, and do you want to go to all the trouble reloading berdan cases when boxer cases are easily available.

I concur with all that Jardows has said, except to add that the 1982 Yugo (Metak) ammo IS corrosive. It is, however, the best (most consistent and accurate) of the Yugo 8mm ammo which I have tried. Eventhough linked for the Yugoslav-built version of the M1919 machine gun, this ammo is loaded to the same specs as any of the other Yugo 8mm ammo. So, don't be afraid that it might be loaded too hot for your rifle....this isn't true.

As for reloading the brass, why bother ? The expense and difficulty of finding Berdan primers....as well as the relative PITA nature of decapping Berdan-primed cases....makes it not worth the effort, in my view.

Corrosive and Berdan primed.
I have some 70's Yugo and it functions great and is accurate

Treat all surplus ammo as corrosive unless you know for a fact it is not (Lake City and HXP come to mind). Sellers will often tell you ammo is not corrosive, when, in fact, it is (A seller tried to tell me Hungarian silver tip 7.62x54r was noncorrosive and boxer primed - I paid $5 more from the guy a few aisles over who didn't lie about it).
