What is the best lubricant for cast lead bullets in pistols?

Is Lee Liquid Alox any good? What works best in a lubrisizer?

You have your apples and oranges mixed up.

If you don't mind spending $600+ on Lubrisizer and all the different size, cut, top and bottom punches - then you will be using the 'stick lubricant'. In this equipment the thick wax lube is squeezed into the lube rings by pressure.

People who do not like the Lubrisizer and use the Lee sizer die kits ($19.99 with a bottle of Alox) use Allox. In this process cast bullets are put in a plastic bag or tupper ware and liquid Alox squirted on them, then lightly tumbled until they are fully coated - then left on wax paper overnight to dry. Once dry, they are inserted into the sizer die (with gas check if used) and sized. Pistol bullets can be used once sized - rifle bullet are recommended to be given a secondary lube ride in the Allox.

The only downside to Allox - the bullets are sticky. This is easily fixed by letting them dry for several days, and then dusted with mica powder. Mica powder is available at www.midwayusa.com and a 4oz can will last you two or three lifetimes.

The Lubrisizer is a good choice if you are going to dot tens and hundreds of thousands of the same bullet constantly all the time. It's common to see one of these in a pistol range that has centerfire leagues since everyone is using the same 45 bullet. Or you are one of those gun guys who feels superior having some doo-daa mounted on your loading bench that nobody else does.

The Lee Sizer kits are very, very handy for folks who like to cast just a couple hundred of bullets at a time, folks who change bullet styles allot - 'cause these little kits are a one caliber fits all. (unlike the Lubrisizer that need totally different punches just to change bullet design inside the same caliber!).

I have learned to hate, and I mean totally hate the Lubrisizer. If you gave me one - I would toss it. I would much rather use the Lee sizer die kits - that are much handier, cost a ton less, and take up a ton less room. I don't mind waiting overnight for the bullets to dry.

One real difference between the stick lube and Allox - you can't use Allox to flux your lead when casting. Keep this in mind.
