Coated Bullet Question Empty Coated Bullet Question

Post by mprince 12/22/2023, 11:29 am

Many years back, before I started getting issued practice ammo, I bought some Penn coated 9mm.  Somewhere between 2-5k of them.  By the time I received them I no longer needed to load them so I put them on the shelf.  I thought i would try loading some of them now so I got the box out.  There is incomplete coating on them.  It didn't fall off, it was never there.  I would estimate 90-95% coverage of the coating.  Is this safe to shoot?  Don't know much about coated bullets.  I don't know if they will be accurate enough for centerfire with this uneven coating, but I could still use them to shoot my dueling tree/TX Star as long as they are safe.  Any ideas or previous experience on this?

Since the bullets are 90-95% covered you could give them a light coat of Lee liquid alox or White Label 45-45-10 liquid lube. That should prevent any leading.

Thanks

That seems like the easiest solution.
