Thanks for the help!
What works for me is the shoot and clean after each shot method for the first 8 to 10 rounds
then shoot 3 rounds and clean 3 or 4 times then shoot no more than 5 at a time if possible
I use Butches bore shine solvent, cotton swab and/or a good bronze brush.
I also recomend using the largest cleaning rod that will fit in the bore. (.270 dia for 7mm+,
.224 dia for 22 to 270) one piece rod will prevent flexing in the bore and point loading/rubbing
against the bore.
Also I like to use a smaller jag (7mm for 308 ETC) because it allows you to use several patches
at one time so the patch material will be forced into the grooves for better cleaning.
When the barrel is broke in it should clean up with one or two solvent applications and a couple
of dry patches.
