Barrels are all different and require different cleaning regiments depending on how quick
When possible I clean every 5 to 10 shots, During matches This is not possible so I have
shot 80 to 100 rounds before cleaning.
Accuracy may degrade to an acceptable level and allow you to shoot as much as you
want, But I get my best accuracy after cleaning and one fouling shot.
What I would recomend is, start with a clean barrel and shoot 5 shot groups allowing
the rifle to cool after each 5 shot string and see when/if the accuracy falls of and to what
level. If that level is still acceptable at the distance you intend to shoot. Enjoy !!!.
The down side to shooting lots of rounds is the cleanup time.
