In this process do you clean with regular solvent after the copper solvent for all cleaning stages, or just after the final one?Question: What is the proper break in procedure?
Answer: "There really is no 'right' way to break in your barrel, but here is the procedure that I use. Get some copper solvent (I like Hoppes #9 Benchrest) and your cleaning gear, and head out to the range for an extended shooting session. Fire one round, then clean the barrel and let it cool. Do this after every shot for the first 10 rounds. After that, clean and cool after every 2 shots for the next 10 rounds. Then clean and cool after every 3 rounds for the next 9 rounds. At this point the barrel has been treated and is ready to go. Be sure to clean the barrel/rifle one last time with a standard cleaning solvent to remove the remains of the copper solvent."
