Rifle break-in

What is the correct way to break in a new rifle? I have never owned a new rifle and this is new to me. Should I just reload some crap loads and go shoot 20 or so? This is for my 300 Ultra mag so 20 rounds might be it for the day.

Thanks in advance. :D

i have never heard of breaking in a new rifle, i would say just go sight it in and youll be fine. my old man bought a 300 ultra mag with the synthetic stock man what a gun but the thing kicks like a mule, I shot a doe last november with it and the thing almost drove me out of my treestand. LOL Good luck with it.
wow, i have never done anything like that well i usually clean out the barrel with a bore brush and a patch cause there is usually grease but i have never had any problems at all. I'll try it your alls way next time, good info!!
