    my way is one shot clean one for ten cool down each shot then shoot 3 clean cool down then again for 4 times then 10 then clean then again then another deep clean then i am away to fowl it up zero then 3x each for bottom min top or until i find a happy load then clean use my load to fowl the rifle and only deep clean after every 50 rounds and so on .wrong or right this is how i do mine

    Go out, chamber a round, see a Deer, shoot it, process it. Job done, back in time for tea.

    Don't mean to me a creep, but this topic is beaten to death about every week. You might try searching back a few days before people like me answer:

    I don't. I just shoot it. Barrel break in is a bunch of hooey.

    Or someone else puts up a link to the massage therapy school of barrel break in.

    I don't, just take it slow and easy to start, don't let it get hot.
    All that means to me is a minute or so between shots while zeroing a new rifle.
    I will clean it after each use to start with until I see if or how badly it fouls, then a good clean every
    50 or so rounds, the exception is the hornet, clean every 100 to 150 rounds.
    After each trip out I single pull through with a bore snake, just remove loose crud and any dampness.
