I have a Tikka Super Varmint on it’s way which has a hammer forged barrel.
I saw a video from Sako saying that these barrels don’t require any break in.
Do you guys agree with this? Should I still put a rod down the barrel every 5 rounds for the first 20 or just shoot it as normal once it’s sighted in?
Also - For sight in, does the method of nore sighting and getting a shot on paper, then holding the rifle at the point of impact and adjusting the turrets to the point of aim to get a zero actually work? If so, does it have any effect on the function of the scope?
