Barrel Corrosion generally is used to describe corrosion or rust found inside a barrel as opposed to on the exterior surface. Corrosive primers, once common, have spelled the demise of many fine firearm, when shooting surplus or foreign manufactured ammunition, always assume the primer is corrosive and immediately clean the barrel. Trust me, I nearly lost a new Ruger 77 All Weather 30/06 to surplus ammunition, it only took several days for a heavy coating of rust to form in the barrel, I was shooting surplus WWII ammunition.
Barrel Corrosion can also form from lack of care on the shooters part by; not cleaning and oiling the firearm at the end of the season, leaving it in a wet gun case or by leaving the firearm in a humid environment without care.
