I will try that but I dont really believe the stickyness is a thread galling issue as much as it just the metal to metal surface tension that is occurring between the machined flat surfaces of the ring and the filter coming into contact as they are screwed together.

The nose wipe grease on the mating flat surfaces will also help. Usually though it seems to be just the thread issue when bottomed, so helping the threads helps most.

I've used nose wipe on lens mount surfaces for those occasional tight lenses and seems to help.

I've never had a problem with sticking once I learned the ancient nose grease trick.
