It is not really worth the hassle most of the time. The only time I'd think of using it is with an extreme overbore that'll go under 1,000 rounds barrel life if you baby it. Then I'd soak the barrel with a plug in one end and mild solvent overnight to break up the crud and clean the next day.
With the mild load route you'll get some shooting practice with your rifle too. Some fireforming loads are terribly accurate. I have used a start charge of h4831 with a 120 sierra in the 7stw to blow out 375 brass and in my rifle it would cloverleaf at 100; my dad's rifle hated that load though.
It is realy your choice but I really don't like to use pistol powder and cereal in a rifle. my $.02
