Found a box of Portuguese with a few rough ones. Safe to shoot? Just curious to how much corrosion is acceptable from a safety standpoint.

If there are ANY question as to whether to shoot or not, simple answer is don't shoot it.
Why take a chance to save a few bucks on ammunition, it is the life blood of the rifle and as they say "garbage in, garbage out..." Military ammunition on the market is there because it has been deemed not suitable for use anymore, if it were it would not be sold on the commercial market.
