No wax, the serving lasted about half as long as every 20 shots. Every 30 shots was about 10% less shots than every 20 shots. Every 10 shots was no improvement over every 20. So, I suggest every 20-25 shots.
Of course, on the lighter poundage bows, the differences would be less noticable because the servings last longer than on the Exomax I used for testing. No matter which bow or serving material you use . . .wax will improve the life of the serving. I promise it's worth the cost/effort.
20 - 25 shots is what I do.
I also wax my whole string,loops and all and work it gently into the string.
I do that about once a month.I keep mine shot in and ready to go.
I don't lube the rail at all.
I shoot blackpowder quite a bit and I keep a spray bottle of 91% Alcohol for spit patches,that's what I clean the wax off my rail with,that or WD-40
