The other day at my local range a subject came up about breaking in a new pistol, I know that the Bench rest folks go through a procedure of cleaning after each shot for the first 10 and then scrub with JB compound and repeat that until 20 rounds and then scrub with JB again, then clean until the patch comes out white. Anyone have any comments on this procedure?

Honestly, I feel like the 'break in' procedure is as much superstition as anything else.

Some of the best rifle shooters out there have been asked how they break in their barrels, and they stay "shoot them". No fancy shoot-clean-polish routine at all.

All I've ever done is lube up everything well (a little more lube than normal) for the first few hundred rounds and shoot then clean as normal.
