you'll get as many different opinions as there are people, on this subject...

you might want to read several of the major barrrel manufacturer's instructions on breakin...

Re: proper barrel break-in

I agree, read Barrel Break-in and Break-In & Cleaning. At the bottom of the Krieger page, you can see the frequency stated. One thing is sure in all break-in procedures, there will be a lot of cleaning.
