I recently purchased a used red dot green dot sight for use on another rifle. It came with a partial container of Crossman premier super point hunting pellets. However the pellets are very dull in appearance and I find that I have to push them into the barrel with a small amount of force. Enough force that I actually bent one of them with my finger pushing it into the barrel. Were these pallets too big to begin with or have they somehow corroded or expanded in size in someway?
If so are they now garbage?

I think you can wash them, then dry it and light lubrication

They did not get bigger - were larger than your bore to start with.
Pellets, ie: (pure usually) lead will oxidize & lose some diameter to that oxidization which usually results in whitish powder.
That stuff is fairly toxic.
Your pellets are not that far along yet.
Yes, wash your pellets in a container, like a 2 cup measure, with dish soap, rinse and
strain then lay out to dry.
Once dry, you can spray them with WD40 or some other light oil. Toll on a paper towel - done.

On my experience, the Crosman Super Point is always over sized. I never measured them tho, and I always have to push them in and it did even jammed in one of my pistols before...

If you had an older gun which I don't know why usually would have a larger bore and like bigger size pellets, that would be a prefect fit~

Pointed pellets are generally the least accurate, all other things equal.
So, you likely have yourself some plinking pellets there, since the tightness in the bore 'aint likely to help accuracy.
Like the other wiser men have said, wash and dry them - If you oil them, they may diesel, but that could be a source of entertainment in itself.

For 150 pellets, is it worth it?

Turns out these super points shoot very well from my Chinese model from princess auto.
I still have to be careful not to deform them when I push them in but they are very accurate and don't seem to lose any power.

That was just some surface oxidation.

I would just spray them with some oil, and towel them. Then shoot them.

I would throw them in the hazardous waste bin and get some new domed pellets. That's just me though.
