Good point Rob, I feel my Steyr barrels need cleaning less the older they get so I would guess the get ‘shot in’. A lot of full bore shooters run barrels in with a careful shoot and clean cycle.
The newer LG110 needed cleaning every 250 shots. It now goes 5-600 before I clean it. I used VFG green felts on pull through followed by a few white ones for this. This process will keep the barrel accurate once it has had a thorough clean with the full VFG kit and white paste. Be sparing with the paste on only the first few felts but give it a thorough scrubbing. Pull through with soft white felts until thoroughly clean, removing ALL the paste. This is very important and may take up to 30 felts.
Make every shot count
