AR-15 break in?
 
Do any of you guys follow a break in procedure for a new AR? My AR is not a bench gun or long range competition gun. I use it primarily for "run n guns" and close to mid range shooting. I've heard a lot of different things from "Just go shoot it" to "Shoot 20 rounds and clean after every shot"....

i think break in gymnastics is a load of BS just clean it to get the shipping gunk out, lube it up and go shoot.

I think the break in on my last AR was 1,000rds of Wolf down the tube over the course of about 4 hours in 120f+ heat.

Just go shoot that thing.
