Re: Barrel Breakin

Hello Tbolt,

Here is Speedy's Method for Rifle Barrel Breakin!

Barrel Break-in

Speedy Gonzalez is a Benchrest Hall of Fame Member, and a respected Longrange Shooter, like many of the guys here. He believes (like many) that some care should be taken in the beginning of a barrel's life. If done correctly
(with bore-guide) it wont hurt your barrel.

Hope this helps!

Re: Barrel Breakin

I have reloaded the 270WSM since 2003 and have used many different powders. My favorite is RL-22 when shooting the 140 grain Accubond bullets. I have gotten my best accuracy out of IMR-4350, and the most velocity out of Magpro but the best combination of accuracy and velocity has come from RL-22.

I am shooting a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight.
