resize cast bullets

so I went to the gun show today and purchased some cast lead 158gn SWC .357 bullets. Was thinking that I should run them though a resize die and lube with alox. I have never reloaded cast and I am worried about leading in my revolver and 1894c. Any thoughts would be gratefully welcome

Running them through a sizer would not hurt. I quit buying cast lead a long time ago. I started casting my own. My Lee 158 LSWC TL shoot great as cast, with no leading at all.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
