Of course you’re going to burn your gas port. There’s hot gas going down the barrel. As far as moving, hows that going to happen? It’s a hole drilled in steel. Not like it’s going to get pushed further down the barrel and take up shop there.You can burn ur gas port and it can move. Also maybe a little faster and easier to clean. I know when I spend 800 on a tube I want to get every once of accuracy out of it
They also sell barrels for a living, so of course they want you to use a bunch of solvents and fire unnecessary rounds. That way you buy a new barrrel sooner.Wether I buy a Bartlein, Kreiger, or Brux I prefer to use their break in method. Seams to me the manufacturer would know better than a bunch of internet gurus.
I’m shooting the rifle anyway so no unnecessary rounds. As for “a bunch of solvents” nothing but hoppes 9. The companies I listed have a reputation as the being top tier in terms of accuracy . I’m guessing their reputation means something to them . It literally takes a few minutes and I’m shooting anyway so no reason not to.They also sell barrels for a living, so of course they want you to use a bunch of solvents and fire unnecessary rounds.

So you honestly think that you know more about the barrels and break in than their actual manufacturer ?Push a couple patches soaked in denatured alcohol down the bore to remove any residual oil and junk from manufacturing followed by some dry patches and then go shoot it.
Barrel break in is stupid. A barrel gets broken in by bullets passing through it, not patches and brushes so the shoot one clean one method really isn't going to do anything. It also takes way longer than the typical 10-20rd's of most break in methods for a barrel to be fully broken in. With that said it's pretty common for a barrel to foul a little at first especially factory grade stuff, when/if accuracy opens up clean and repeat. I'll typically clean after the first range session of 20-50 rounds and then again around 100 and by then it's usually pretty well smoothed out if it's a top tier barrel. I usually won't clean again until 500 or so unless it starts acting weird when the barrel speeds up which happens sometimes and then I'll clean to eliminate that variable before revisiting the load/ammo.
I don't go overboard cleaning at the first intervals either. A couple wet patches of bore tech eliminator, wait 5 mins, repeat, wait 5 mins, patch dry, swab the chamber and it's good to go. No need for a brush to come out until the 500 round cleaning and even then its just a few passes with a nylon brush.
It burns up and creates a small void look it upOf course you’re going to burn your gas port. There’s hot gas going down the barrel. As far as moving, hows that going to happen? It’s a hole drilled in steel. Not like it’s going to get pushed further down the barrel and take up shop there.
Maybe you could post the link for us since you are familiar with it?
I know full well what he's insinuating I was merely putting the onus on him to provide evidence of his fantastical claims vs having us 'look it up' that an elaborate break in is going to keep gas port erosion from happening. Last year I went over 5k rounds suppressed on my fav gasser of all time still a 1" gun at worst with hunting ammo all I did was wipe the packing grease off the BCG, add some CLP to contact points, bore snake it and rack the bolt. The day I got it went to ranch zeroed thermal popped off about 200 rounds on steel and went out and rolled a hog: break in complete. I'm sure I'd be shocked at how my barrel *looks* if I cared to push a bore scope through it, but I more interested in how the target looks downrange post squeeze.
