Default When breaking in a firearm ......

What exactly does that mean? are you breaking in the rifling in the barrel or loosening the springs up or what?

Yeah, depends on what you're breaking in.

For automatic pistols breaking in just means allowing the parts to wear together until they loosen up. Some manufactures say their guns require a break in period of so many rounds before the gun can be considered reliable. This doesn't take any effort, just refers to the first so many round fired.

But for a rifle used for hunting or competition, where accuracy is crucial, there is a process that you go through to "break in" the barrel. I've seen lot's of different techniques for doing that, but it involves a sequence of firing, cleaning, firing, cleaning, etc to properly prep the barrel for regular use.
