I personally do not wipe between shots , but I only use it for hunting. Even when I pull it out to shoot to make sure it's still on, I might shoot 4 shots and I have no problems with my next shot. I think any more and I would wipe maybe every five shots or so. If your hunting and actually can get a second shot, your not going to wipe before a reload.
As far as cleaning for storage, I'm still a firm believe in bore butter for all my smoke poles even my newer inline, I use a wet patches to clean, then dry patch, once all clean I swab it with bore butter and even wipe the out side of the gun down with it.
