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.
