Do I just use a regular bore cleaning solvent or is there something else I shoud use?
Regular solvent should be fine for removing any oil, etc. left on by the manufacturer. Make sure the barrel is wiped out with enough clean patches so that it's nice and clean before firing, and then follow the instructions that appear on the link for breaking-in. By the way, is your gun bore-sighted? If not, do you know how to bore sight using sand bags? Might as well sight-in and break-in at the samje time. Right?
