Old bullets

Since the shortage I've had to rummage through old stock and found 1000 .38 .357 158gr cowboy action cast bullets purchased from Proofmark over 10 years ago it seems the lube dried out, do pre lubed bullets dry out or can I use them as is? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

sure just tumble lube them and you should be fine. I believe the lead will harden with age also.
