Even heard that 22 barrel will basically never wear out....

I like to break in barrels of new .22s with copper wash stuff. I put 500 rds. through a new barrel. Stuff like the Federal bulk stuff is good for this. It helps to burnish the bore and smooth things. Then I start looking at different ammo to see what it likes. Federal 711B shoots well in just about everything.
