Re: Breaking in new barrel question
Thank you for clarifying that. The "fallicy" question was totally my idea to start the discussion with the tech rep. I didn't think asking about a break in procedure was relevent, if he didn't believe in the concept.
The way I worded my response did not make this clear.
The quality of the barrel pretty much dictates my cleaning regime during break in. But I certainly can't say after all these years and barrels, that I am altering the final outcome, if my (cleaning) regime is different than yours.
I have seen an accuracy improvement also. Using just one load to break in the barrel can often give you a pretty good indication of when it has "settled in".
