Different Barrels August 13, 2021, 10:42:29 AM Over the past several months as I've been doing a more thorough cleaning, I've noticed a clear difference between barrel manufactures and how easy they are to clean. There are a few where getting the carbon out is a long process while others clean up with with only a moderate amount of effort. These are all after market barrels from reputable suppliers. Have others seen this?One thing to note, which is how I break in the barrel....that is I don't. I don't do the shoot once-clean once process. I will go and take 10-20 shots, usually to zero and get some initial data, and then go and clean it well. After that, I'm done with any break-in. In thinking about this, depending on how well the barrel has been lapped, I could see that differences in the finish could have an impact on how the carbon will bond to the metal. So doing the shoot once-clean once could help prevent this initial build up and perhaps remove some of the initial roughness.
