I didn't know Howa had one. I know Winchester has one Krieger and Shilen does. The Shilen site is where I send most people to explain what is happening during the procedure.
All our stainless steel barrels have been hand lapped as part of their production, as well as any chrome moly barrel we install. Hand lapping a barrel polishes the interior of the barrel and eliminates sharp edges or burrs that could cause jacket deformity. This, in fact, is what you are doing when you break-in a new barrel through firing and cleaning.
I'll have to check the Howa and especially the Remington break-in procedures. Thanks for the info!
...nuff said.

I've been told by Savage that their rifles do not require break in. The break in procedure page is to make people feel warm and fuzzy in the event that they insist on following an unnecessary procedure.

If you wanna do it, do it. If not, then don't. Doesn't matter.
