pulled military bullets

What would be a good way to remove that black tar like selant on pulled military bullets. I'd like to have them cleaned off good before reloading them. Thanks

    Faith 1

    Just wash them with lacquer thinner and then tumble
    if nessary.

    I use the ball (FMJ) when hunting pelt animals,bobcats,
    coons,coyote's,etc.

    The match bullets are ok for breakin or practice but I
    have not found any military bullets except factory loaded
    match to be very accurate at 200+ yrds.

    good luck

    one more question

    is there a difference between the 30 cal bullets loaded in old 30-06 military ammo? I've pulled both, from the 8 rd clips and from boxes marked match. The bullets appear to be the same. I'll be shooting mostly paper & varmints at mostly under 300 yds. thanks

    There could be depending on what designation ( M80,M118,M852
    and others)

    308(7.62mm) Ball M80 is 149 grs.
    3006 (.30 ) Ball M2 is 152 grs.
    308(7.62mm) Match M862 is a 168 gr hp bt.
    3006 (.30 ) Match M72 is 175 grs.

    As you can see you must weigh each bullet and separate
    by style ,spitzer,boat tail, hollow point, etc.

    There are a lot more types and weights than I have
    listed so be carefull and have fun.
