Anyone tried waxing bullets?

I've experienced consideralbe fouling from Barnes TSX bullets and a bit from Hornady GMX, probably because my rifle has seen a fair number of hot loads.

Ha anyone here tried using auto wax or similar coating on bullets (not molybdenum) to minimize fouling? I'm wondering whether pressures would be reduced too much, causing a drop in muzzle velocity and perhaps, poor powder ignition.

I'll probably try it on a few, just to see if there's reasonable reduction, without causing other problems.
