I tumble lube my handgun bullets with liquid Alox almost exclusively; I even thin it somewhat with mineral spirits so its easier to get a thinner, even coat that's barely noticeable. Big improvement over any commercial "hard cast" bullets with hard lube that I used to buy - I've not had a leading problem in anything since I started casting and lubing my own - although for anything over 1100-1200fps I tend to load jacketed so I don't really know how fast I can really push them without leading issues. I bet liquid alox would work just fine in pistol length barrels, even thinned. I'd probably use it a bit thicker for rifle barrels.
