AK;
I've used Alox in BP 45-70. Accuracy beyond 200 yds was very poor. Fouling a bit difficult to remove. Your results will likely vary.

As for lube wads in cartridges, what about powder contamination? I always use an over powder wad (vegetable wad - very thin cardboard) to prevent lube migrating from the projectile to the powder. I suspect that a lubed wad over powder in a cartridge won't work too well due to powder contamination. Of course that will depend upon how long the cartridges will be left loaded before firing. If you do decide to try lube wad over powder, please let us know how it works.

In any event, good luck and have fun.
