I've been getting into reloading 45ACP lately, using Red River Bullets 230gr. round nose lead (.452") that I pick up at one of the local reloading shops. It's what my father has been using, which has been the beginning and end of my decision-making process. I went to pick up another box of bullets last week and they were sold out, annoying. I happened to be a gun/reloading shop in Rochester over the weekend, and noticed that they have 2k count boxes of 230gr lead (manufacturer name is Black Bullets Intl.) for slightly cheaper. Looking at these bullets, I noticed that they don't have the red lubricant/wax ring as the Red River Lead I'm used to. They appear to be just a chunk of cast lead, straight out of the mold, into the box.
My question is this, is the lubricant necessary, or will the bare bullets seat and fire just fine? If I picked these up, would I spend an infuriating amount of time lubricating each bullet before loading?
