Gents, I am new to SS barrels. I have a new 24" varmint RRA with a Wilson SS in .223 Wylde. Break-in is shoot one and clean, etc. To make it easier, I am planning to use a "Bore Snake" with some CLP as opposed to a cleaning rod, jig and patches. Is this procedure OK? Anything else I should do?TIA

The topic of barrel break-in is always worth a good fight here!! Sidestepping the contentious issue of its actual value, my personal view is that a bore snake would be pretty much valueless in the process. IMHO, if you're going to do it, you're going to have to get a one piece cleaning rod, a rod (or bore) guide, a copper solvent and the other related cleaning equipment. Otherwise you shouldn’t even bother.
