I am having Greg Tannel rebarrel my 300 Win Mag using a Broughton 5C barrel. I get such conflicting ideas on proper barrel break-in. I would be interested in hearing from you all what has worked for you. Greg suggests not using a bronze brush after the first shot, just patches and solvent (no Barnes' or Sweet's). Then swab bore with a patch that has 3 drops of Graf oil then fire a few shots and clean with bronze brush, solvent and patches and then apply Graf oil again and repeat until about 20 shots have been fired. Tim North of Broughton has a different method. I have been using Darrell Holland's Witch's Brew regularly on the old barrel but am not sure if it may have prematurely worn out my barrel. Do any of you use Witch's Brew? It is a mild abrasive. Thanks, Rufous.
