Your gun will almost always tell you how long you can go between cleanings. After I am sure my barrel is broke in, and I am sure yours is with that many rounds, I usually shoot shots until I can see accuracy or POI changes due to a dirty bore. Then I know from then on about how many I can go before I need to worry about cleaning. You can also use this method to figure out how many fouling shots you may need if your gun isn't great at placing the first shot from a clean barrel in your group.
I do think it is good accuracy but my point was that you are having good success with some issues still and if you can figure those out you will be really good to go!
