Head bolts on 5.2L V-8: One Time Use?

Folks-

Can someone check a factory manual and let me know if the head bolts on the 5.2L V-8 are one time use? My old bolts look perfect and I'd like to save the $65 if possible.

Thanks,

Haynes says they're reusable if you run a die down the holes (which should be done anyway) and over the bolts, for what it's worth.

Thanks, Dal. I saw that in the Haynes. I'm leaning toward reusing them, but I'd feel better if I heard it from someone with a factory manual.

I totally understand. There's nothing fun about head gaskets.
