Myself- I clean after ever shot for the first 50 rounds and then after every 3 shots for 50 more. After that I shoot as normal and clean when I get home.
For those that think it is a waste of time-- Have you ever done it to one of your rifles to see if it makes a difference?. I would bet not.
Does it make a difference?.. I don't think that quetion will ever be answered.
As for accuracy-- Deer gun or bench gun?. I own only bench rifles,so I want them to last as long as possable. 17,000 rounds down the 223 and still shoot primers out of 9MM cases at 100 yards. Shooting MOA- Is not that impressive people. In the end--Break your rifle in the way you want and enjoy.
