The PH sits in the safe, taunting me. I have to break in the barrel. (Wally specifically told me to use Armalite's (spit) break-in procedure. I believe him.)

It is disgustingly cold outside, not to mention windy and damp. Not conducive to something as time-consuming as break-in, or as precision-oriented as zeroing.

Well, the Zeroing in I can see waiting on. But the Breaking in? Hell, Bundle up and send some lead down range!

After all, Goblins Don't Hibernate in the Winter.

The recommended method is: Shoot one; soak, scrub.

Repeat nine times.

Shoot five, soak, scrub.

Repeat four times.

15 degrees and windy is TOO COLD for that.

It was an example, you know.

I am halfway through break in on my build and looking forward to finishing that - and then printing some groups from this barrel.

If you think I'm going to take anything but the manufacturer's advice on a rifle like this, you're nuts! (When do you tell me to throw it down the driveway?)
