Its voodoo.

Mystical cleaning rituals do about the same good as having a jungle shaman wave a rattle at it.

The only thing you need to do is clean the oil and shipping grease out of the barrel then go shoot

Dude, you're like, so wrong man!
That Jungle Shaman thing totally works! You however, must first place the barrel under a pyramid with a set of crystals arranged in the sacred Aztec accuracy pattern during a waning gibbous moon to get the full effect.

Yup. Most of my words are unintelligible but the chicken squawk is unmistakable. (and here I thought I was the only one that did this and was afraid to post it).

I talked to a precision barrel maker that is unfortunately no longer with us , and here is how he explained it to me . A barrel is only good for so many shots ,every time you run a brush down the barrel you cut the life span down . He said you break it in like that if you want , I will be glad to sell you a new barrel much sooner . He told me to clean it when the accuracy starts to fall off ,other than that your just wasting your money and time

I take it out and follow a very specific ritual of shooting and cleaning.

1. Clean it when I get it.
2. Lube it with proper lube.
3. Go to range SHOOT THE SNOT out of it.
4. Clean it when I get home.

If the bore is chrome lined, then it is truly a waste of time.

This guy has an interesting "break-in" method.
