    I use CLP to clean and synthetic grease to lube, and then thinly.

    Being around the M16/AR 15 for over 30 years and working as a lubrication professional, I'd have to say that OP is wrong on his assumptions of Molybdenum being a good choice for high heat.
    Moly is a solid film lubricant that is mainly used for extreme pressure loads, no such loads exist in a bolt group of that weapon not to mention attracking every spec of dust in the atmosphere and trapping it causing wear.

    If you remember the time when the OP was an active member and mod you would have known better than to question his opinions, lol.
