Re: tikka t3 break in??

hi stout shooter

clean the rifle well before the first shot!!!

how you clean is up to you.... i use hoppes benchrest on a phosphor bronze brush and let it soak for a while, sometimes for a few days if there is considerable fowling after prolongued shooting. then wet and dry patches until they come out clean.

for break in, i use this method:

1 shot and clean for 5 shots
2 shots and clean for 5 sets of 2
3 shots and clean for 5 sets
5 shots and clean for 5 sets.

ensure that the bore is clean. it should be near enough run in by this point, although it is very dependent on the quality of the bore....

hope this is of some help to you

derek
