I typically clean each time I go shooting. But I've heard that doing so is unnecessary and may even be detrimental (over-cleaning). What do you guys think? Thanks.

I usually clean the bolt group completely, brush the chamber and run a patch or two down the barrel after shooting. By the 3rd time putting rounds through it, I give it a complete cleaning. It also depends on how much dust it got covered in.

Ditto. Of course all this is dependant on how many rounds I put through it when I go shooting. If I shoot 30 rounds I just brush the bolt group and run a patch down the tube. If I shoot 300 or more it get's a good cleaning. Copper solvent every 1K rounds or so.
