and nothing blew up. Always a comforting thing.
Only a few rounds today. I wanted to both make sure it worked, and get the scope roughed in. Both accomplished. There were a couple of times the bolt didn't lock back, but I'm not screwing with ANYTHING until it's had more rounds through it. Everything's new and a little wearing-in never hurt. Right now the bore's getting cleaned thoroughly, and next time I fire it should be on the 100 yard range.
Other reason didn't want to fire many: new barrel should be cleaned thoroughly after first use. DPMS says 'after every round for the first so many, then after each ten for the next so many', which is nice, but the range objects to people breaking out cleaning rods and solvent; therefore, just a few and cleaning it thoroughly now.
