    Hey guys,

    I bought my first coyote/beginning long range set up.

    It is a remington vsf 223 with a vortex viper 6.5x20x50 scope. Im gonna break in the barrel tomorrow.

    How many times should I shoot, then clean with copper solvent, then shoot and clean?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    I used to break in my barrels, but I don't bother anymore.

    A factory barrel may benefit somewhat, though.


    Something to think about,

    We spend a bunch of time, effort, and componants to break in a barrel to do what?

    To make barrel cleaning easier in the future, while we toil away now........
