Got a new 7m. b

Here's the deal guys; I just took home a new TC Venture 7mm Rem Mag. This is my second 7mm. The first was a second hand Rem 700. As this is a new rifle, and there is all the buzz whether break-in is a myth or not. I thought I'd ask this: My belief is that a formal break-in using cleaning chemicals and patches between shots is not necessary, but I bought a box of Federal Premium 160gr. trophy bonded for the gun, and upon inspection found that the case AND BULLET are nickle plated. I know the theory of break-in is keeping the copper off the rifling to help the bullet smooth the bore, but will shooting a nickle plated bullet be a plus or a neg? I would think that as a break-in round, that nickle should not deposit on the throat or the lands, and might be a good choice. Advice please.............
