Breaking or Shooting in a new barrel?

This is an age old question and there are many different opinions on this topic. I have discussed the break in of new barrels with the world’s best bench rest shooters, gunsmiths and barrel makers.

It does not matter if you are using a custom barrel manufactured by one of the good barrel makers, or you have obtained a factory rifle, my method for breaking in a barrel is similar for both.It all depends on copper fowling and how easily it can be removed. I use only top class barrels that are cut rifled and I use a bore scope to look inside the barrels that I break in and tune.
