I have a private range and I fire off a couple of shots down range every second day or so.
I may only fire 2 or 3 shots, clean the rifle and put it back in the safe for next time. This is a pain in the butt and I was wondering if I was doing more damage to the barrel through over cleaning than just putting the rifle back in the safe uncleaned and then cleaning the bore say once a week instead.
Topshot, if the barrel is well broke in there is no need to clean that frequently, if your shooting every couple days, I would clean it once a month or when the accuracy fell off. You should see how good that barrel really is and find out how long it will go without a good cleaning. If your enviroment is very humid, and rust is a problem, then a fellow should clean and oil the bore.
