60 rounds at the range is nice gange time, using a bore snake & letting the barrel cool is great . My range time is about 25 rounds in two hours. I run some solvent patches through the bore for the trip home & give it a good cleaning at home. I never leave the bore fouled. Some may clean after 200 rounds or when accuracy dropes off, but I'm old school. Get a bore guide & be careful not to ding the crown on the back stroke. Most barrels are screwed up from poor cleaning habbits. Don't forget to clean the bolt face & lube the bolt camming area. Bolt guns are easy to maintain. Triggers on hunting rifles are 3.5 and higher so 1" groupe at 100 yards is good. Enjoy the rifle
