Regarding Liquid Alox, White Label sells the same stuff as Xlox for $10.70 a quart, which will last a long time. As far as tacky goes, I bought some motor mica from Midway a long time ago. I use an old cup-sized aluminum salt seller to sprinkle some it over the bullets and roll them around in it. Dry enough handling for me. It kind of resembles Hornady's swaged bullet lube afterward.
