.45 cast bullets

Has anyone out there used cast bullets ordered from either www.houstoncartridge.com or www.nationalbullet.com .The bullets are fairly cheap, at about $30-$40 for 1000. I was just wondering if these bullets have been sized and lubed? Can anyone tell me? I looked at Bull-X and Laser Cast, I think both are lubed, but these are so much cheaper. Why?

I've used a lot of the NBC bullets, both because of price and because I shoot indoors a lot and prefer the plated bulets.

They seem to work fine.

All of the bullets that NBC sells, are sized, and lubed. (Just a note: If you really like Bull-X bullets, stock up, cuz they are going out of business!)

Never used them, but from their web pages, they list the cast bullets hardness at 18 Brinnel. I do use Laser-Cast bullets and their hardness is 24.
