    Im a novice shooter for sure but i just ordered an american predator in .308 and before i fire the first round through it id like some advice about procedure. Does it need to be broken in and what is the best method? I appreciate any tips.

    There is a thread here somewhere about breaking in barrels... maybe a mod knows how to find it. It is either jaw dropping or laughter inducing, maybe both, but informative anyway.

    I do remember some discussion on breaking in a new barrel.

    But, I cant find a specific thread on the subject.

    Might be a good topic for a thread...

    Sounds like it would work in "Gunsmithing".


    Go for it.

    I seem to remember...thorough cleaning before firing...shoot one, swab barrel for 5 rounds, then shoot 2, swab barrel for 10 rounds, and then as normal.
