Probably not.

You might laugh at me here, but for years I used to think a lot of things I did mattered.
The more I focused on what I did and how I did it the better I shot....My rifles usually shot a fair bit better than most other guys equipment seemed capable of....Then I retired and got to the point where helping folks with their shooting mattered more than winning....I was surprised to learn their equipment and reloads were often as good as mine! All that crap I fussed over in the loading room...was pretty much worthless.
It was the tens of thousands of rounds I was sending that made "my rifles shoot".

I preach a different sermon these days...I don't talk about single digit runout or even suggest that Savage sucks any more....( )....Just KIDDING!

All you will hear from me these days is "send more rounds down range" or "square up your trigger pull"....That sort of thing....truth is nothing else really matters.
It is also true that I enjoy shooting more now than I ever have.
That's good stuff right there! I'm with you guys for sure on all of this. Good to get some discussion going over all this, best part of this forum is to capture the knowledge that is out there, so thanks for speaking up.

My own thinking on breaking in a barrel is just based on common sense. I think with any top-quality custom barrel that the tolerances are so high 'breaking in' is not going to do anything. Maybe the first 1 or 2 shots will just get the copper imbedded into the bore, I guess that's the same after you clean it.

And speaking of cleaning, I've been doing a new "process" that has been working great for me and my barrel fouls much less. I'm thinking at this point that I am straying off topic... maybe I should start a new thread ..."breaking in a cleaning a LR rifle". I think lots of other guys would have some great input on this.

In. My 300 Win Mag Rem 700P 5R

Reloader 22 with 180 to 190gr bullets

H1000 with 210 to 230gr bullets

WW brass with Fed 215M GM primers

The Nosler Accubond 190gr and RL 22 is sure a joy to shoot

Lots of H1000 users and it works very well for sure. With the 210 Berger, Federal brass, 215GM, and Retumbo from a 29 inch Krieger, I get better accuracy and velocity.

You have a 29" barrel plenty room to burn slower Retumbo

I have no problem burning 79gr of Retumbo in my 24" Milspec 700 at 2900 FPS with a 210 VLD.
