Ben's T/L Liquid Lube is good stuff as well. Simple, easy and it works on handgun loads.

60% Alox
40% liquid Johnson's One Step No Buff Wax.

I started using alox when I first started casting, other than pan lubed black powder lube. I didn't like the goop that built up in the seating die or the appearance of the bullets.(I was putting way too much on as well) So I went to a star sizer, two actually, one for smokeless and one for black powder lube.

Anyway, I tried a few with the 45-45-10 and will be doing more for sure. I don't think I'll retire my sizer, but for most rounds I think I'll be tumble lubing again. Love how it makes the bullets turn out, hate having to wait for them to dry. I haven't done any accuracy testing, but just plinking showed promise.
