Every 100-150 pellets. The difference in group size is pretty small but if I have a big session at the club it starts getting messy once I get past 300. There are a few more EV's at the club that find the same. 100 is probably a bit excessive but it definitely shoots tighter groups with a clean barrel.
I used to shoot at a 10m club and they all used the VFG system on a very regular basis but with a knowledge of how many shots it took to get the optimum amount of lead in the barrel prior to a comp. (for the EV it's 2-3 shots but the LG may be considerably more)
