You don't have to have your gun-smith loc-tite it after the bore sight, simply only take off or back up one of the windage screws at a time.

You can bore-sight yourself with a bulls-eye target at 100 yards. Simply look down the bore and zero the bore to the target, then move your scope to that zero without moving the rifle. If done correctly you are already on paper at 100. You can use a collimator too, but they don't work well with false muzzles(brakes, etc.) and are slower so I don't bother.
Thanks! this is all great advice. I cannot wait to get to the range suday! by the way...
I have heard many ways people break in their new rifles....do you have an opinion on that?

The 300 wsm really shouldn't need a brake, but they are sometimes useful for extended renge time with a rifle.
I have a boss on my 300 win, but don't have my 300 ultra, 338win or 375 h@h braked, so it's really your show on this. There are guys here that'll help you but you may want to see what your local guy will put on first. You've got to remember a brake pisses off nearby people from the noise and will make it louder for you too, so I'd shoot the rifle first to see if it NEEDS a brake.

I don't have a break-in for rifles other than don't get it filthy to start with. I've tried the shoot, clean stuff, and just shot other rifles, and it doesn't really matter. You've already got the proof round down the pipe, so shoot a couple to zero, swab it out, and start shooting.
