Is there a recommended barrel break in for the 617?
Just curious since I just bought one.
Thanks

In my opinion, no.

Carefull shooting Remy Thunderbolt (AKA Thundedleaders) in it.

With any new gun, I just take it easy for the first few hundred rounds. I don't get the barrel hot, and clean after each fifty rounds. Gives it a chance to smooth any small burrs and do a little polishing.

I clean new rimfires when I get them and then just start shooting. With a 617, you can use just about any ammo for break in, but I think a nice subsonic round like CCI or Winchester SSHP or Wolf MT would be fun to start.

I clean my firearms with Eezox before shooting them. With the 22 lr firearms, I don't worry about the break in as much since I'm not dealing with extreme pressures and super high velocities.

I normally like to break in a new revo with a couple of hundred rounds of jacketed stuff to smooth the bore before starting on lead stuff. The closest I can come with a .22 is the copper wash high speed stuff. I think it helps to smooth a new barrel. Then you can use anything. CCI Standard works well for me in most guns.

No need to break in. You can't where that gun out or hurt it. Just shoot and clean like normal.

If you can solvent clean the barrel and cylinders first, but don't worry if you didn't no harm done.

Just shoot, reload, shoot, etc. Then go home and clean.

I wouldn't worry about heat. I sincerely doubt you could over heat a revolver barrel if you tried. As with any firearm clean the barrel prior to shooting for the first time. No brush I just run a dry patch through to remove any obstructions.
