    Thinking of tumble lubing without gas ck. for 44 mag rifle - up to what speeds should the alox protect from leading

    I don't know the answer to your question, but I will tell you my experience.

    7.62x54R, cast of straight air cooled CWW, dip lube in BLL after sizing. Shooting out of my 91/30 at just under 1800 fps, not a trace of leading.

    I think you'll find that nobody can answer your question except you, shooting your firearm.

    I don't know what the max is but I'm shoving a RCBS 45 cal. 405gr. out of my 1895's at 2000 fps. with H4198. I use Lars Xlox and get zero leading in either my Micro-groove or Ballard rifling.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    +1 to what Bookworm says. All my guns will perform differently. So i just reserve it for plinking work. Haven't used BLL but i use 45/45/10 at the moment.
