I ordered a new barrel to finish up my 300WM build..

Its a brand new never fired Savage Stainless fluted 26".

Just wondering how you guys break in a new barrel.

I dont reccomend shooting a tubbs final finish unless the throat is already erroding badly...I cant explain why but I have heard this from benchrest shooters.

I reccomend shooting and cleaning for 5-10 eounds maybe as many as 15 if the barrel is bad then a few 2 and cleans.

To clean first wet a patch with butches bore shine run patches until you dont see blue anymore then brush then dry patch twice. YOu will know when the barrel is broken in when you wet patch and it busts through the carbon ring extremely easy.
