I think the whole barrel break in started in the military where they took really rough barrels and shot/cleaned them until they were better.

Knew a military guy who was pretty "spooky" and he said they did all manner of **** to their rifle barrels/actions, including soaking them in hot water, etc. But he was kinda superstitious so not surprising about the barrels.

Only barrel I have broken in was a Shilen 6.5 grendel for my AR. Was not recommended to do so but I thought since I spent so much on it and I wanted to build the most accurate rifle possible I would spend the time & money. Used cheap, brass cased Monarch ammo and cleaned and fired as the instructions (from the I-net) stipulated Did it help? I don't know. But it is a tack driver and it is a Shilen, known for their accuracy!

With that said, a lot of my rifles are very accurate without going through the process. Just gotta find the right load.

13gauge is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
Have many rifles that shoot sub moa and none of them have had a break-in. Shoot and enjoy, clean after each range visit. Just my 2cents.

Yup. That's how I've always done it.
