Is there a recommended break in procedure for Remington rifles?

Table of contents

Overview

To properly break in or "season" a rifle barrel we reccomend you use a good quality cleaning rod, a good quality bronze brush and patch tip, flannel patches and quality bore solvent. (we recommend the use of Remington Brite Bore Cleaner & Rem Oil).

INSTRUCTIONS:

For the first 20 shots, you should do the following:

For the first (10) shots:

Run a patch saturated with Rem Oil through the bore after each of the first 10 shots, and follow up with a patch saturated with Remington Brite Bore, and finally a clean patch to remove all residue.

For each of the next 10 shots, run a patch saturated with Rem Oil through the bore after every two shots, and follow up with a patch saturated with Remington Brite Bore, and finally a clean patch to remove all residue.  Now follow the cleaning guidelines below:

To ensure the highest possible barrel quality/life, you should repeat this cleaning procedure every 20-25 shots until the barrel has had at least 100 rounds through it. Failure to do so could result in excessive build up of fouling (copper/lead deposits) in the bore causing decreased accuracy and requiring more frequent cleaning between shots.
