What should I do? :sniper:Barrel Break-In Procedure
Q. What is (YOUR) barrel break-in procedure?

A. Although there may be different schools of thought on barrel break-in, this is what Precision Shooting Magazine recommends:

STEP 1 (repeated 10 times)

Fire one round
Push wet patches soaked with a powder solvent through the bore
Push a brush through the bore (5 times in each direction)
Push dry patches through the bore (2 times)
Push wet patches soaked with a copper solvent through the bore
Push a brush through the bore (5 times in each direction)
Push dry patches through the bore (2 times)
Push a patch with 2 drops of oil through the bore
STEP 2 (repeated 5 times)

Fire a 3 shot group
Repeat the cleaning procedure from STEP 1 after each group
STEP 3 (repeat 5 times)

Fire a 5 shot group
Repeat the cleaning procedure from STEP 1
They recommend the use of a patch with 2 drops of oil after the cleaning so that you are not shooting with a dry bore. It is also advisable to use a powder solvent and copper solvent from the same manufacturer to be sure they are chemically compatible.

That some work.:cheers:

My opinion is that the technology used nowadays is to such tight specs and tolerances, with testing and "TARGETS" sent with each firearm, I have not owned a firearm in the last 10 years, 10 rifles/guns, that needed breaking in. Now a good cleaning keeps it that way!

Remingtons procedure

What is the "break in" procedure for my Model 700ML?

Question
What is the "break in" procedure for my Model 700ML?

Answer
There is no set "break in" procedure for the Model 700ML. We do recommend swabbing the bore between shots with a cleaning patch saturated with Remington All Natural Wonderlube paste. This helps to remove fouling and will actually season the bore resulting in easier cleaning and increased accuracy. You can find detailed cleaning instructions for the Model 700 Muzzleloader HERE .

I'll clean it like muzzleloader for a box or two, and call it a shooter. I'm sure it's better than i am. :sniper:

Anyone use the Limbsaver Barrel De-Resanator?
