As long as they are not deformed they are fine. Years back when I shot in competition, I sometimes bought 1000 packs of pulled pistol bullets for practice. There was no problems.

Al long as they aren't cut up or damaged I have used thousands of them.

You can also re-size pulled bullets if they are a bit damaged from pulling. I have used pulled, re-sized military surplus bullets with no problems.

Do not listen to them. Pulled bullets are extremely dangerous. They must be disposed of by a highly qualified person, ME! Send them to me and I will try to find it in my heart to deal with them.
