New Gun...Shooting Tomorrow!

Ok. I bought a Savage 110 FCP-K in .300wm. So obviously this is a factory barrel, what do I need to do? I was only planning on shooting about 20 rounds or so. I have heard about many barrel break in techniques, and I've also heard to just shoot and clean until I'm done then clean. What's the right thing to do for my gun?

IMHO I would use one of the barrel break procedures you mentioned unless the manufacturer has a reccomended procedure in which case I'd follow the manufacturers reccomendation...don't want to void any warranty.

With my Kimber Police Tactical in 300 win mag, I cleaned after every shot for the first 5 shots and then again after 5 shots and then after ten. It has worked pretty good so far.

Vic, don't shoot it until you read the featured article by Jim See. You can find it on the home page, I think it's titled barrel cleaning at 17x. It's a good read. I use a slightly different product than Jim, but always follow the same process as he outlines. I think it definately makes a difference.

Read it. Very informative. My barrel isn't custom, but I'll use that method. I'll report back.
