Spray light coat of WD-40 or just use them.

Just use em,dose'nt hurt a thing. Wash your hands after handeling. The white stuff is lead oxide it is the main cause of lead poisoning. Same stuff they used to put in paint.

Re: Lead got corroded .

I had a couple hundred .22 Long Rifle rounds that had developed that corrosion. I put them (20 or so at a time)into a pint glass jar with some coarse sand. Then I shook the jar until the sand had rubbed all the corrosion off of the rounds. Then I lightly sprayed them with WD 40, dried them with paper towels and they shot like N.I.B. ammo.
