Thread: new rifle

    Default new rifle

    Somewhere I heard or read about "breaking in" the barrel of a new rifle. So, what is this and how do you do it? I have never done this, but I have a new Tikka T3 338wm and want to trat it right.

    Default Breaking in a new barrel

    Seen this on Guns and Ammo.

    Clean all the grease and residue from your new gun
    Run a swab, with bore cleaner/solvent through your barrel
    Fire your rifle.
    Run a swab with solvent through your barrel again.
    Repeat this step after each firing up to 10 firings.
    Then fire your rifle 3 times.
    Run a swab with solvent through your barrel.
    Then fire your rifle 5 times
    Run a swab soaked in solvent through your barrel
    Now fire your rifle 10 times.
    Run a swab soaked in solvent through your barrel.
    You are done.
