I used a bore snake during breakin of one barrel and found it didn't properly remove what I intended to remove. I'm not anal about the breakin procedure but I also feel there's a need to clean the new bore often. It depends on what you want the rifle to do for you later. On a causal use carbine, maybe after each of the first 5 rounds and after each 3 for the next 15 would be quite enough. I've seen some real good shooting rifles that were fired 10-15 shots before cleaning from the beginning.
