Check out [url]http://www.jarheadtop.com/article_breakin.shtml[/url] It's written by Jack Kreiger. There's another break-in article written there as well. George Stringer (well known gunsmith) recommends a 1 shot & clean cycle 5 times, then 5 shots & clean cycle 5 times, then 10 shots & clean cycle until you reach 60 rounds. By "clean" he means from the breech end with a coated rod and copper-solvent soaked patch...10 passes of back-n-forth, let it soak for 5 minutes, then 1 more solvent wet patch for 10 strokes (in-n-out), then dry patches until bbl is dry. I did this with my .300 Win Mag and couldn't believe how the groups shrunk. --Otter

barrell break in is BS, hokus pokus. Just shoot the damn thing. Clean it when you get done. If You Can't Stand the Pain, Don't Play The Game

when i got my 10FP i shot <20rds cleaned and that was it. then shoot 240rds of Port. surplus and still shot under MOA, then cleaned again.

I bought a Remy 700 in .308 new. All I did to break it in was shoot 5 shots swab a few times and repeat for about the first 50 shots. Then shoot and clean as usual. It shoots groups tighter than a gnats ass!
