I shoot 5, clean and repeat for 25 rounds total making sure barrel doesn't get too hot in-between. After that, I'm good to go. Have never used Tubbs or similar.

  I like the Tubbs Final Finish system. Very easy to use and it works. Not for everyone though, as it comes at a cost.  There are hundreds of opinions on this particular topic. Most of the ones that you'll find work fine, I woud'nt look into it to much as you you will drive yourself insane trying to find the "perfect method".   Then there are those who don't believe in barrel break in. Gale McMillon was one of those.

On a premium barrel (krieger / bartlein ect)I would shoot one round and clean with sweets 7.62 for the first 10 shots. barrels like shaw/wilson/ milspec  tubbs final finish work really well or just go shoot after all its left up to you.

It all depends on how good of a barrel you start with.

I usually clean thoroughly before ever firing a round, then I'll fire 3 shot groups and clean for 20-30 rounds. I used the Tubbs final finish on one and it seemed to do the trick to.
