    Hi there, I am doing this right now with a 7 mm mag. I am firing one shot, cleaning the carbon with slip2000 carbon killer and then using copper solvent until all the copper is gone, fire a shot and repeat until copper being laid down reduces considerably.
    A match barrel might take about 10 shots to do this, a factory barrel considerably longer.
    Once the copper laid down reduces considerably you can then go to cleaning every 3-5 shots until you have fire d 20 or so shots.

    Every one has their own way of doing this and the next person will probably tell you something different!

    Stu.

    I use the same process as Kiwi and have very good results.

    Shoot and clean until you feel the difference, at some point
    you will notice that it only takes a couple of patches to come clean.

    Some barrels take 10 to 15 fireings others may take 20 to 25 but stay
    with it and your efforts will be rewarded with good shooting and
    minimum copper fouling.

    Open bolt. Insert round. Close bolt. Pull trigger.


    Clean when groups start opening up.
