    I took a look at savages way to break in a barrel (Savage Arms) and it seem like a good way to do it. The only question I have is why would you use 2 DRY patches instead of a wet patch or two with solvent on it and then the dry patches?

    Seems to me the procedure is started with wet patches attacking powder, followed by brushing, and dry patches, then wet attacking copper, brush, and dry again.

    Yep. It seems the same to me. I think I answered my own question a bit ago. So this method seems good right? Most likely I will follow it when I get the supply of ammo and the time :).
