The .308 kits consist of 75 Sierra 190-grain bullets impregnated with an abrasive compound. The advertising promises that by firing them in sequence "you will soon be experiencing better accuracy, greatly reduced fouling, and much easier cleanup." And it would serve as a break in. ...
David Tubb is by far my most favorite nationally known rifleman, I've always found his outside of the box thinking very intriguing.

First thing I did upon receipt of my M1A Loaded was to thoroughly clean and lubricate the rifle. My biggest gripe was cleaning all the carbon and copper out of the barrel.

I've never worried about barrel break in since. I suppose if I built the rifle or asked the builder not to test fire the rifle, I might consider barrel break in.

Just shoot it like you stole it, especially for something like a SOCOM.

Thanks from Wasted ammo
