Al03 is fine no need for boron

This honing process is technically a grinding process so i choose the material the same way I would for a standard grinding wheel. And your never supposed to grind a Al really without dressing the wheel frequently or you will load the load it up and destroy it. Same thing applies with honing but since you can't dress it you dunk it in oil and run it as little as possible knowing full well it WILL be ruined eventually. I do a quick hone on the raw sections of barrels when I bore them I only do it for like 10-15 sec just to take out the tool marks even then I only get about 100 barrels out of a hone before it's too loaded to work
