Mosin brass

I recently aquired a mosin 7.62x54r rifle and 100 rounds of ammo.
Can anyone tell me if the russian spent brass is capable of being reloaded. I have been told conflicting statements. Some say because the original casings have corossive primers they can not.
Any help?

I guess I'll beak out the magnet and see what I have.

Re: Mosin brass

All my ammo is magnetic. Looks like I can not reload.
Does anyone have spent 7.62x54r non steel shells they want to unload?
