    I switched to nylon about 5 years ago. With the newer solvents I just use it to loosen the carbon up. Also the Boretech eats up the bronze brushes.

    bronze brushes get spendy when they turn into a one time deal, nylon for me for the same reasons

    Tar Boys. Pretty much echoing my thoughts. Let the chems do the work instead of friction. Should be out the range tomorrow or the next to runnin. Was lookin at doin 10x1,5x2,5x3,2x5,1x10. To much/little. Really appreciate the guidance

    Sounds good. Keep us posted on how it shoots. I am sure that it will shoot well because I have never heard of a 5r milspec that hasn't.

    Re: New rifle break in:5r mil spec

    This is my first post to this forum. I have been reading this site and other LR/sniper sites for a while and enjoy long range shooting. I am a hunter, however, 600 yard shots are almost impossible here in Maine because it's so heavily wooded. Never the less, I own a few long range guns and take advantage of LR shooting when I can.

    I recent bought a new Remington 700 Milspec 5R and came on this site to get recommendations how to clean and use this rifle. I was really pleased to find this thread. Thanks for your insightful comments. Now all I have to do is go on the range as the wind blows and the temps are below freezing!
