I could be wrong, but "I" have never seen/heard of any gun that key-holed with a load, helped to any significant degree with more barrel break-in.
Just because a load shot well in one gun does not mean it will shoot the same even if the two guns are identical (so to speak).............

I would look for a smith with a borescope and see what the problem is and stop wasting ammo. Could be chatter. Won't know until you take a look.

I think the point is that it no longer keyholes after the first 45 rounds with the break in process. What ever was there is gone.

Corn cob factory barrel, behold:

Do you think any amount of polishing is going to fix this one ? I have heard of this being found on more than 1 6.5mm Savage barrel of late. I own several Savages BTW.. And I have yet to pay more than $350 for a Shilen Select Match barrel to avoid this kind of shite.

And cucumber does not feature in my diet..

Re: Barrel Conditioning "Wow"

After extensive research, I have found that my precision firearms perform best when I let them cool for at least two (2) cucumber sandwiches between groups.

I have also found Mot is a great copper solvent.
