Thanks for the guide Tim. Im sure many will use it.

You beat me... that is what happens when I go have lunchReported as spam
Yup I do it to mine all the time, our DDM's do it to the issued guns when they first get them....Wow! Has anyone else ever considered the implications of these procedures in the real world?
I've never followed the "break-in" procedures with such attention. I still have sub 1/2 inch groups in both 6.8 rifles. From a theoretical perspective, these "break-in" procedures seem to be predicated upon and relegated to a concatenated structure of theory (a collection of observations with lots of antidotal evidence in support and in refutation and no means of empirical testing). No one can prove it works because each event (barrel cleaning and all other intervening and spurious variables that can be conjured up) is a singularity and can't be "done over" again to test the idea that the "break-in" is producing the results. A diachronic comparison couldn't be performed for the same reason.Considering most do this procedure lovingly of their new high end barrel. I'm sure they've thought about that little labor of love and done it. I've done it in the past and it wasn't a huge issue. Nice stress free day at the range away from the kids weeeee.
