The residue is caused by the low shear strength of the polystyrene. I haven't confirmed this myself but, I've heard that this still occurs even in overbore situations.
What would the end result you're looking for?
Have you found the residue to cause problems (i.e. velocity consistency, inaccuracy, etc)? I've only found it to be a problem in the rifled barrel which can cause enough residue (or as I call it 'fouling') to stop a round halfway through the barrel.
An intermediate step may be to find a J&J ceramic barrel that has teflon and see if that has any reduction in residue build up.

Could give RainX or some turtle wax a shot if you really wanted to. I don't see it harming anything, though I don't know if it would help, either.

The problem with RainX or whatever is that it wears unevenly.

dependent on the barrel AND if you dont want to use it for anything other than FS i would recommend brass lined then, treat the fins with graphite, we did similar things in the 80's the graphite eventually seated into the brass, had a 30-50 increase in fps, made paintballs water proof you could see if a ball had hit and not broken by a silver skim mark on players, the down side, the shells seemed to harden off and breakless (in the 80;s not such a bad thing) any cuts made buy the balls on open skin turned into weeping pus filled sores, and the graphite made its way though the markers usually getting cauggt under sears.

Oh, the good old days, powdered graphite in the hopper.
How about paraffin wax? There are some spray on products available that adhere to metals rather well. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is called Boeshield T9 which I use on my bicycle chain.

Well i have need using the grafite now for a few weeks
Must have put nearly 500 first strikes through the dam.
And not had to clean the barrel once!
Bit i have come across another problem....
The grafite blocks the eyes.
I will just leave the barrel covered with grafite and see how long it stays in their for.
