Default “You must break in your barrel!” Really?

I’ve never believed in a barrel break in. I’ve done it to a few. I took out a rifle I put together a month of two ago.

Impact 737 action
Foundation MG2 dark distressed
Proof prefit comp contour 26” 1/7.5 6mm creed
Trigger tech diamond set at 8 ounces
Atlas BT46 with RRS arca adapter
Foundation full length Arca rail
Hawkins M5 DBM
Hawkins heavy tactical rings
Leupold mk5 5-25x56 PR2 mil

So you think a barrel needs broke in to shoot well? I decided to just seeeeeeeend it today. No shoot and clean. Just straight up sight it in then run heavy strings of fire.

Factory Berger 105s.

Here’s the rifle. Then here’s an 11 shot group as fast as I could load em and shoot at 100.
