I just built a new RRA CAR a4. Im about to break in the barrell and wondering if I should use the boresnake or a standered brush/rod method. The barrell is crome-lined and I dont see any reason not to use the boresnake b/c I think it cleans really well. but what do you guys think? The only reason im asking is Im a little short on cash after buying the rifle and I dont have a brush/rod/jag, right now for a rifle, Ive only got one for a pistol..

I planned on spraying clp or hoppes #9 down the barrell and letting it sit for a min or two and then boresnake it like 3-5 times.. for a bout 10 singles then 5-2 shots and so..on and so forth.

here's a link to "Breaking in a barrel" from RB Precision, a major RRA dealer in Illinois and a Dealer on the AR15 Industry Forum:

treat crome-lined just like any other barrel. Shoot like you stole it.
