On a NEW gun, you should do this...before...going out to shoot it
Always better to be safe, as far as making sure any factory crap is out of the barrel, gun is clean and lubed/oiled/greased where it should be (on the AR, you want to make sure the bolt and bolt carrier group assembly is well lubed). Doing this might have helped out with your FTF's and FTE's, part of that is just break-in, but alot of that could have been caused by lack of lube or not enough on the BCG.
