1967 vintage .38 Special shouldn't give you any problems corrosion wise. With ammunition, propellants get weaker with extreme age as opposed to stronger. One danger to be mindful of with real old ammunition is hang-fires where it takes a moment for the round to go off. If shooting real old ammunition (or even new I suppose), and it doesn't go off, keep it pointed in a safe direction for minute before cycling the round out. You don't want the round to go off while out of battery.
