    What is the preffered routine to break in a barrel.

    Rem 700 24" ss 270 WSM barrel, I can buy factory rounds first so that I can keep the brass....I have 150 Nosler Ballistic tips but no brass yet. I would like to end up shooting the 140 NAB. Any help would be great.

    There are two stages to properly breaking in a rifle.

    First stage.

    1 - Get a bunch of ammo.

    2 - Take ammo and other shooting junk to the range.

    3 - Sight in the rifle.

    4 - Shoot a bunch of ammo

    5 - Clean the rifle.

    6 - Go home.

    Stage two.

    1 - Take rifle to field.

    2 - Shoot critters or rocks or anything else (but not neighbors cat), to check zero.

    3 - Go home.

    4 - Clean rifle.

    It is now "broken in"

    I was hoping you guys would give a little more technical answer like:

    Gather rifle caliber magnamus

    Stock pile ammo

    Set up video to capture ballistic energy corpusalure mist

    Fire at will at all Felis Catus specimens

    E-mail video to fellow technicians for review.
