Hi guys was looking advice on a new rifle. I have never had a center fire from new I always bought second hand. I have a new 243 arriving soon. I would just like to know do you use it as normal and clean? How often? Or do you have to break a new barrel in with so many shots? and then clean? I have heard all sorts of different advice and stories its just incase the manual is not in the box.
Also how often would you recommend cleaning a rifle. I would try and use mine once a week say no more than half a dozen shots if that when out. I don't clean it after ever outing should I? I never would store it damp.
