    Yes no reason why not.

    If they are oxidised wash them in some warm water & detergent the dry them in some kitchen towel, then leave them somewhere warm to completely dry.
    Then try some, if they are the correct calibre for your rifle.
    You may need to re-zero depending on the weight of the pellet.

    If they work well, use them.

    Hope this helps.
