Default Bullet Lube VS Brass Lube

I have all the 30-30 reloading supplies now...well...maybe. When I got home from the LGS I realized that I had purchased a bottle of Lee Bullet Lube (#90177) which is "liquid Alox" according to Lee literature. What I wanted is the brass resizing lubricant #90006 and all the Lee literature states is that it is "non sticky". So the question is can the Lee Bullet Lube (#90177) be used on the brass in the dies/press?

I personally use the Dillon stuff as the wax in the Lee case lube will gum up your sizing/decapping die.

An interesting tidbit from: http://www.surplusrifle.com/shooting/brasstrimming/index.asp

"Ted and I, being rather frugal, prefer something outside the realm of reloading, namely GB (Gardner Bender) Wire-Aide, Wire Pulling Lubricant, (Part # 79-006). GB is available at most home center or electrical supply stores. Itís the same creamy, wax-based product as offered by the reloading companies. BUT, an entire quart of GB is less than $5.00! ($3.60 at Fleet Farm in the Twin Cities) As I said, Ted and I are frugal. "

Dillon case lube is lanolin cut with alky. A spray bottle from the dollar store is a buck. Liquid lanolin at the health food store is $1.25 an ounce. Denatured alky at the paint store is $9 a gallon. A lifetime supply can be made for less than $20.
