Re: breaking a barrel

I shoot one then clean and continue this process for a 100 rnds after the 100 rounds I shoot 3 then clean. It takes along time but hey I spend alot of money on my critter gitters and this process has worked for me every time. My 2 cents.

    I was mistaken, diff board on the 308 v 30-06 statement. One of the guys I shoot with did the breakfree trick to me, I thought I was doing something wrong [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    The guys were being mean, saying I didn't clean my barrel well enough...

    *Trick* Clean the barrel completely to the best of your ability- Now run a patch with breakfree down it... I thought you cleaned that thing! It's always black when I do it too!

    Oops. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I read the list you posted and somehow the line above it was forgotten instantly. I'm almost 38 and that is starting to happen. Thanks for reposting it.

    Re: breaking a barrel

    When breaking in a barrel do you guys shoot a dry bore or do you oil before each shot after you clean? I have heard arguments for each and would like your opinions.
    thanks

    Goodgrouper, it funny that you quote Mcmillan.

    Gail Mcmillian was one of the guys that didn't believe in the 1 shot-clean break-in method.

    Not trying to be a *******, maybe just a wise-*****, but seriously he has said that it was BS.
