Re: breaking a barrel
I'm not saying barrel break in is wrong. I totally agree that it will shoot great and clean up way easier when it is broken in.
I'm just saying that if you don't do the one-shot-clean method it will still get broken in after a certain # of shots. Maybe you wont know that exact moment because you shoot more rounds before cleaning, but it will be broken in.
Listen guys, I have my own routines that I'm a perfectionist about and I know I'm in the minority here, but for me it works. I'm not knocking any of your methods.
