    Lee Alox Tumble Lube

    I've had this Lee Alox liquid laying around and thought I'd give it a try. I've never used it. I cast some Lee 225 grain 30 cal tumble lube boattail boolits for my 300 Blackout 9 inch. They're for subsonic rounds through a suppressor. Will the lube be a problem through the suppressor? Dirty? Anyone had experience with Alox and suppressors?

    No experience with suppressors, but it is good lube. Assuming your bullets are sized appropriate, you certainly will not get leading and will likely get good accuracy as well.

    I have a customer that runs full auto 9mm sub guns with suppressors and uses Carnauba Red. He says that he doesn't get any build up in the suppressors and that it runs very well in his guns.
    Hope this helps

    never leave moderator on rifle when not in use as all the crud in it will cause rusting and corrosion

    Thanx robg. I hadn't considered that. I'm sure I don't clean em as often as I should. Except the 22. It fits in the sonic cleaner.
