Default machine pulled SS109 projectiles

Hi All,

was looking at the SS109 machine pulled bullets on gunbroker & noticed they have some divots on them. I'm guessing those divots are from the pulling machine? Has anyone ever reloaded/shot these and how much do those divots affect reloading them and/or accuracy in shooting?
I can't help but think they affect accuracy in a negative way but I've never tried them.
I was thinking about getting these to reload for my "rainy day" supplies, they'd be for two-legged BG's out to 400yds (from a 20" Government profile tube OLL). In short, they don't need to be match accurate, enough to deal with a social situation & that's it.
I can't afford $500 a case for surplus SS109 so I was thinking about these & reloading as an alternative.
Anyone tried these, your experience with them?

I've loaded several 1000s of pulled 223 bullets in both 55 & 62 gr. Makes for good plicker/hoser/SHTF!

Why get it from gunbroker pulled? Wideners has a stock of 62 gr. and much cheaper.

I've used both the pulled ss109's and m193's. They work pretty well for general purpose ammo. Definitly better accuracy than wolf. My SPR does pretty well (1.5-2 MOA) with the pulled m193 and a medium charge of DP68. Not bad for ammo I can load for about $75/k.

Who is Wideners? They have the SS109 bullets themselves or loaded ammunition?

1.5-2 MOA is not bad at all, sounds like these would be workable.

Thanks very much for the help, I really appreciate it. I checked what they have & it's much better than gunbroker. I didn't know about them & was surprised at what all they have & the prices.
