Breaking in a new barrel

Finally found a 300 RUM i wanted. How do i go about breaking in the barrel? Shoot it, let it cool, clean it, shoot it again. Repeat? Its my first brand new gun and i would like to get off on the right foot with it. Thanks for the help.
Andy

    If its not coppering up just shoot it. If it is clean every few rounds like 5 or so untill it calms down.
