Re: New rifle break in? True or hype?
Dont worry about it.. its a myth.
Id be pissed if I had a custom rifle...If i spent hundreds of dollars on a custom barrel and they said "Oh.. and you also have to spend more money to break the barrel in"
It may end up fouling less the more you shoot, but I dont think accuracy will increase due to break-in...sorry.. just my opinion.
Give Gale Mcmillan a call... See what he has to say about the subject
"...I shoot big cartridges, not because I am ego bound, not because they are needed to kill big game when well placed shots are made, but when an error is made, they will get you out of trouble more often then a lesser round."
