Just out of curiosity could you feel a difference in the bore? I ask because I can usually feel a difference in the in the cleaning rod after breaking in a barrel. It feels smoother but also requires a little more pressure to slide through the barrel (with a patch).
I would also recommend you use some JB bore cleaner (assuming it can still be found). Just follow the directions on the container. Apply now and then in the next 200 or 300 rounds. It's also great for used rifles.
