A friend of mine recently turned me on to using beeswax wads in handloads. Since he handloads all of his ammo on a single stage press it is a little easier. Just before placing the bullet, he puts a beeswax wad that has been precut and tumbled in dry moly, under the bullet and then seats them both. I have seen this in action. He can shoot 2 full mags out of his M1 and touch the barrel without getting burns. Apparently after each shot the beeswax melts slightly and coats the barrel for the next shot.
