Theres alot of thoughts and opinions on this subject. Myself, in the rimfires I clean the factory grease and oil out of the barrel and just start shooting them.

I've heard 10 shots clean, 10 shots, clean, etc. You get the idea.

I say clean initially then let em rip. Just my 2 cents.

I do a modest one; clean and lube after every shot for 5 shots, then clean and lube after every fifth shot, for 25 shots. then clean and lube very well, and let 'er rip!!!
If you have a semi auto you may wanna repeat after every 50 shots, for about 500, just to make sure, and pay attention to that chamber!!!!!!

Green Mountain Barrels come with directions to clean every 10 rounds for the first 100. I think that is a good idea and a minimal sort of breakin.

I went to the extreme, Cleaned after every shot for about 20 rounds, then after every 5 for a long while.. My gun shoots great so I like to blame it on all the work I put into the break in.

That's the cleaning procedure I used for my 93, and it really paid off. It's the most accurate rifle I have ever owned.

I have four 93's in my safe, one I tried a break in cleaning after every shot the first five, then cleaning every five shots for 20 rounds, then cleaning every ten shots for 50 rounds. That rifle shoots as good as my others, but it took it longer to get there. The other three started shooting their best and most consistant after a couple hundred rounds, the one I used a break in for took over three hundred rounds before it would shoot as tight and as consistant as the other ones.

The probelm is every barrel is different, and you can only break it in once. So theres no way to tell which way is better for an individual barrel. Most rimfires seem to respond well to just shooting the "S...." out of them!
