Can some of you experts please provide some first hand details on what or what not to do for making semi-autos reliable during very cold temps?

Weapons in question are 30-06 Remington 7400 with synthetic stock and Browning BAR with wood stock.

A couple of things that I've done to a new 760/7600 is to run some dummy rounds through them to slick them up and see where the wear points are. I make up the dummy rounds with a case, no powder, a pencil eraser in the primer pocket, and a Remington pointed Core-Lokt bullet. I load them in the magazine(s) for the rifle and run them through the action by dry firing. After a couple hundred rounds of this activity, you will see bright spots at the wear points. I then lube those bright spots with Moly Slide. Using this process, I've never had a problem with any of my pumps in cold weather.

I have used Remington dry lube on autos when I lived in New Hampshire with good results. Not exactly Arctic conditions, but a heck of a lot colder than I cared to be out in.
