It can't be easy to screw it up, right? Lead bullets, a gun that has been made for decades? Aside from field strip and clean before first shots, what should I do to ensure it will last forever?

I've never done anything other than clean it when I get done shooting it.

Just shoot it. Don't worry about wear and tear on a 10/22.
Besides, with such a huge aftermarket for these, you'll likely be upgrading things anyways.

I've heard running a bore snake down the barrel after the first ten rounds for the first 50 rounds and then a few times after that might be the best thing you can do for it.

Since it's a factory barrel just shoot the hell out of it.

When you Slap a lilja barrel on one you tend to pay attention to procedure.

Shoot away!
