I'm using Loctite Moly Paste which is 65% Moly.

That said my bike went 50K+ with what looked like red chassis grease and no discernible wear on the splines.

I believe that most worn splines are from bad wheel bearings which allow the splines to run off centre. That combined with poor or no lubrication and the splines are soon gone.

Just don't layer it on too thick, the stuff is really heavy so centrifugal force will ensure that whatever it don't need will get thrown off all over your back wheel and anything else in the way that it can adhere to, nasty mess to clean up!!
If the lubricant can be thrown out your o-rings are compromised which would also allow dirt to enter shortening the life of your splines no mater what lubricant is used.
