Tarnished copper pills

Found a couple boxes of Hornaday 30 cal 150gr bullets leftover from dad’s reloading pile. Probably from late 70’s-early 80’s? They are noticeably tarnished & discolored. Are they still salvageable? Any suggestions on what with/ how to clean them up to use?

Awesome, these should work good for the bullpup loads. The Tavor seems to like the 150’s best

You can probably clean them the same way you would brass. Put in a tumbler with some lemishine and they should clean right up.
