I like to test fire all serious weapons before use. More for function than accuracy, but I have heard from other long rang shooters that they do that also. I know a few Snipers who never wanted an freshly cleaned rifle. I am not too sure if any science is gonna convince any of you “clean gun all the time” folks. I like a little carbon in the action and barrel. I won’t change either, set in my ways.

Funny thing is, the one exception is, When I hunt with a muzzle loader, I do want a clean gun. Mostly for scent control, but also for sure ignition.
