I apologize if this has been covered previously. Since the instructions for applying Dyna-Tek Bore Coat call for cleaning the barrel to bare steel, it seems like the time to coat a new barrel is before it's been fired. Of course I would still put some patches down it to clean and degrease it. I just bought a new Tikka T3x in .270 WSM and am thinking about doing this. Is there any reason not to use this product in a brand new barrel? If you did would it change the recommended barrel break-in procedure (I realize that's a hot topic all it's own but I just want to hear opinions about that).

Is this a factory rifle? If so it's been proof fired. Regardless I'd still do the whole cleaning process including JB Compound.

Yes, factory rifle. 10-4 on the proof firing. I have some JB compound and various solvents, so I'll give it a good scrubbing. Thanks for the advice on that.

Interesting that you have to come on here to ask such a question when it says right on the package to visit www.Dyna-Tek.com for additional application instructions. Oooops, forgot that there are no additional instructions on that page or anywhere on Dyna-teks web site and hasn’t been for over a year. Absolutely no customer service on that product from said company in the same amount of time. If you have to come here for help, it’s junk.

I've UBC'd quite a few rifles from new and who knows if it worked or if I got a good bbl or if the initial cleaning process takes out most of the burrs and snags that hold the copper.

I saw Al Nyhus post about burnishing a new bbl and I'm betting he aint wrong.

Good bore guide, clean bore, 20 dry strokes with a new bronze brush followed with some patches til clean.

So easy even I can do it. cool


A guy can go to hell just as fast for lying as he can for stealing.

Everyone except Swifty can do it apparently.


There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.

LMAO, the best response that they have regarding actual truth and fact. Other than being threatened to shut up or else from one poster on here. I am still waiting for these folks on here to prove that the company isn’t outright lying about additional instructions being on the site by giving me a link.

But just so the OP knows I asked the president of the company by email, which he gave me his addy after finally getting a response from the company on FarceBook about the lack of such link and no answers from Customer Service. Also asked whether the instructions given me here on this site were still valid or just BS, never got an answer. But thanks for emailing me this MD.

well finding info isn't that hard these days but you may be right about finding info on the website. Things happen.

But since all the info is posted now its a no issue really.

So you know for a fact that those are completely valid, then answer my 2nd question that the company won’t. Both instruction sets allude to being cured in 8-10 shots, however MD alluded to stopping and cleaning after those 8-10 shots which is not mentioned on either those old no longer available instructions or the new ones. True or false.

Swifty, all the proof we need around here is the many satisfied shooters who have used it, with one exception.....YOU.
