+1 . There was a article from a top target barrel manufacturer I read that was in some old archives on another forum . He stated that if you want to wear your barrel out sooner follow the directions
. He said we as barrel manufacturers are in a business of selling you barrels . what the best way to get the customer to purchase another barrel ? Thats right wear it out quicker . I clean my target guns every 100 or so rounds and barrel break in was 10 rds , clean 10 rds clean and that was it . Shoots 1/2MOA just fine even with cheap factory ammo
