Breaking in a new rifle or handgun barrel is beneficial not necessarily from an accuracy standpoint, but because it makes cleaning the firearm easier.
To break in a firearm simply follow the method below:
1. Clean the barrel after every shot for the fist 5-10 shots.
2. Clean the barrel after every two shots for the next 10.
3. Clean the barrel after every fifth shot for the next 20. (do not shoot so fast that the barrel gets overly hot)
After that you may shoot the barrel as you like and clean when necessary. What the break in period does is essentially season the barrel, it removes any tooling imperfections left from when the barrel was made and allows for easy cleaning for the remainder of the life of the barrel.
