Got a nice deal on 500 200gr lswc hard cast $26.00.
Would like to load them 700/800 fps for 45lc these have no lube in the groove. Good to go as is or should I be hand lubing?
In advance thanx..

Strange to find unlubed cast bullets. You could use some Lee liquid alox if you're not set up for lubrisizing.

I don't know what they are, but they are not Sierra lead bullets from the Sierra bullet company we know & love.

They don't, and have never sold cast bullets.

As for lube?
Yes, they have to be lubed.

If there is no trace of dry lube, or no grease in the grooves??

They probably never made it to the sizing and lube part of the process.
They are just 'as cast' bullets like they dropped from the mold.

Have you measured them??

They might be Seirra bullets and not Sierra.
It used to be common practice to play with brand names like that.
