Where to find cast bullet not lubed?

I like to play with powder coating but I don't want to cast. Anywhere to find cast bullets without lube? I googled but no luck. 308 > 150 grs, no gas check, prefer pointed or round nose. I could buy lubsed bullet and remove the lube, but messy and too much trouble.

You could contact Brad at Missouri Bullet and see if he offers just sized bullets with no lube. Or coat and size bullets yourself.

I shoot and like the 165gr 30-30 bullets from Missouri Bullets. I think the unlubed bullets from the MBC are just what you are looking for.

I look at their 30-30, it is flat point. Does it feed well in 308 bolt guns? They are around $30/250, pretty good price and coated already. On the unlubed/unsized page in the link, I can't tell exactly what bullet the 300 BLK is! It does not say quantity either, my guess is it is 245 grs and price is for 250 rnd according to the pdf price list. $34/250 is not bad!

Matts bullets may come none lubed if you ask for them that way.

Here is the link for the coated 300 Blackout bullets the MBC offers.

As for round nose bullets feeding in a bolt action rifle, yes they will. In the scheme of things Spitzer bullets and jacketed bullets are fairly new. Round nose lead bullets were used for a long time before the others came along, even in bolt action rifles.

FWIW, when I first tried PCing some rifle bullets I had none without lube. I set some upright in paper towels and "cooked" them @ 200 degrees for 15 minutes in my toaster oven. Lube melted and ran down to paper towels. When cool I swished the bullets in some mineral spirits to get all the remaining lube off. Not too messy...

I believe if you contact the makers directly they would be happy to sell you unsized, unlubed bullets. I've purchased unsized, unlubed bullets from 3 different vendors to play with powder coating myself, all were happy to sell them that way.

Traditional lube can be removed by soaking the bullets in white gas for about 20 minutes, stirring, and rinsing.

Summers Enterprises and T&B Bullets will send unlubed / unsized.

Missouri Bullets covers all the bases. You can buy coated or standard cast lead lubed bullet in quantity in both rifle and pistol or you can buy 100 bullet sample pack or if you so choose you can purchase unsized/unlubed bullets as well,coat and size them yourself.
