Is this too corroded to shoot?

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.

I would clean the worst ones and check for pink spots. As long as there are no pink spots I would shoot them.

P.S. I would check the cases. Surface corrosion on the bullet isnt a problem for function, unless it is real thick and changes the diameter of the bullet.
