It's called Fire Polishing.......You go to the range (with a lot of ammo, and a lot of patches!). After 1st shot, clean the barrel with a good solvent. Then fire the 2nd shot and clean again. Do this for the first 10 rounds, cleaning after every shot. On the next 20 rounds, clean every 2nd round. On the next 30 rounds, clean every 3ed round. That's IT!ridgerunner said:I am in the process of buying a new rifle. I was reading today in the Sierra news letter that I should break it in, but they didn't tell how. I would appreciate any help on this.

If you get a lot of fouling, pick the break in method you like the best (and I would do one that is the least abrasive). If it shoots fine out of the box and you don't have any significant fouling, I wouldn't worry about it.
