Default AR 15 Lubrication / Oil

I am looking for best practices and advice regarding the best lubricant for the AR bolt carrier. I have yet to find a lubricant that truly holds up for any period of time while on the range. I shoot in hot and cold temps and would like to find an all weather lube that protects the many metal on metal parts. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I would recommend Ballistol.
