If you don't need to resize I think the Pan lube system is good and sufficient...

Life is too short to pan lube.
Tried it once.

I used to pan lube until Lee's tumble lube came along

For sub 1000fps bullets, tumble lube is what I would use. Even for bullets with traditional lube grooves it works just fine. Pan lube would be a second choice.
I powder coat anything I am driving faster than that.

I tumble lube with Alox for smokeless cartridges, but have not had good luck using Alox on bullets in black powder cartridges.
If you guys are getting good results with Alox in black powder cartridges, how are you doing it?
I don't exactly pan lube my blackpowder bullets...I melt the beeswax/Crisco together in a little crockpot and dip the bullets into it, then let them set up on a sheet of waxed paper. But then I have always been a little different...
