I put 20 or 30 bullets in a small plastic container and drizzle a small amount of alox on them and swirl them around to coat them, then I put them base down on cotton cloth to dry. The cotton wicks away excess alox and makes for a little cleaner bullet. Takes up to 24 hours to dry.

If you don't have paste wax, you can just thin the alox with mineral spirits. Straight alox can be a bit thick and tacky. Careful, tacky bullets like to grab dirt and sneak it into your loads. Handle and store carefully.

The paste wax mix is better. They dry quicker and are less tacky.
