    I recently, today, bought a new Remington 700 and have heard various theories on breaking in a new gun. From cleaning after every shot for the first 5, 10, or 50 shots; to firing 20, cleaning and repeat; and to not baby a Remington that’s why you bought it.


    What are your collective thoughts?

    great choice for a rifle, congrats. hope this helps.

    for me in hunting rifles no i wouldn't do it. but if i had a rifle that was desgnated as a long range "sniper" type weapon then i would do it.

    I wouldn't worry about breakin. Just clean it well after each shooting session.

    I own 3 Remington 700 rifles. Old Betsy a 30-06 made in 1962, a 223Rem VSL and a 22-250 that I rescued at an estate sale. Each one was broken in very different. The most care was taken recently with the 223 Rem. They all shoot extremely well at 200 yds in competition.

    You made a great choice in Rem. 700. Take care to clean it completely each time you shoot and you won't need to be too concerned about "break in".

    Your 700 will hit what it is aimed at. Just make sure it is aimed at what you want to hit!
