pulled bullets and resizing

Is it absolutely critical that machined pulled bullets be resized? I notice that most suppliers of pulled surplus bullets advertise theirs as being "polished and resized", but I just got a lot of .22 cal tracers from Wideners that I doubt, based on the dirty mess they are, have had anything done to them after being pulled. Would any be deformed so badly during pulling that shooting them as is (well, after cleaning them up, at least) would be dangerous, or just perhaps inaccurate?

Pulled bullets (if done halfa**** right) should never need sizing. they may have a few dings on them but that does not hurt unless you are trying for sub MOA groups. Most surplus pulled bullets are miltiary and fine for everyday shooting but cannot be depended on for sub MOA groups when new so the few dings wont hurt a bit. Maybe tumble them( or wipe them off if they are tracers) to clean the crud off but thats all thats needed.
