    Thanks to so many for providing pros and cons on Barrel Break in philosophy.

    You get as many accuracy shooters that say yea as you those saying nay.

    I opted to go for the break in procedure rather than take a chance later on that I may wish I had and I also wanted to see how it works. Takes all day to do 2 rifles. I'll tell ya!

    Anyway, yesterday I shot my new Savage Arms 10FP 308. It ain't all that pretty but I gotta tell ya it's a shooter.

    There has got to be something to barrel break in stuff. I watched as I got further through the procedure the group coming together.

    I was using factor federal run of the mill ammo. in a 20 something round break in series after around 15 or so i noticed the group getting tighter.

    I can't believe this is just a coincidence. The rifle is amazing. Makes an average or less shooter like myself look great.

    Any rifle will get more accurate after a few shots. Most need 50-100 before you will see the rifles true potential. The debate is whether cleaning after every few shots helps, or should you just shoot and clean when dirty.

    I purchased a used Savage 10FP, and it might have had 40 rds through it. It is 1 hole accurate with Fed Match, and reloads. The guy either broke it in right, or the guns just a great shooter:) I'm betting on the later.

    Congrats!
