    I bought some pulled 223 rounds but from what I have seen they might be a bit more oval than round from the pulling process. Does anyone thin that the Lee Lube and Size Kit 224 Diameter could fix this problem? Thanks.

    I use pulled bullets exclusively for my AR plinking loads. They have some marks on them, especially one on the side of the bullet. It gives the impression that the bullet is out of round. The ones that I buy from Hi Tech Ammo are supposed to be already re-sized.

    I have found that these work very well out to about 75 yards for plinking. At 100 yards the groups open up somewhat larger than new bullets. Beyond 100 yards, forget it. But, most plinking is done inside of 100 yards, so I will continue to use them.

    If I want an accuracy load I use Sierra 69 or 77gr Match Kings, or Hornady 60 gr V-Max's. All three of these are very accurate in our AR's.

    I have used pulled bullets in both 223 and 30. Unless you are shooting
    matches these do well pulled or not. I usually put them in the tumbler
    for awhile and most of the pull marks go away.:) :)
