Pre-breakin new barrel cleaning

I just acquired a new Weatheby Fibermark with SS barrel. I've never cleaned a new barrel before but it seems to be recommended so I did this time. The picture shows the patches used.

Cleaning started with the top left patch (Bore Tech Eliminator); BTE was used for all patches in the top row with the last one left to soak for 10 min. Middle row is clean patches, starting left. Bottom row is just a final patch of Kroil/Hoppes.

I understand that blue in the patch represents copper and am very surprised by these results. I did not repeat the process with BTE but I could if needed.

Can anyone comment on these results? Thanks
