Rifle break-in

663 Views 19 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  blnagel
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

The way I do it is shoot 50 rounds of reloads, like with plain speer pointed soft points and a good clean burning powder. Then after than I clean the gun and find me a bullet and powder combo that works the best in the rifle. It may take a while to do this but just make 5 rounds of the same bullet with different grains of powder, the same goes with other types of bullets.
