Break in period for G6R?

What's the general consensus on this? How many shots do you put through a new G6R before you can/should start tweaking with pressures, settings, etc.?

20k shots would ensure breakin. I noticed mine significantly around 12k got way lower. pressures.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

meaning every time you replace the orings, you have to go through a break-in period again?

The regs use shims that don't need to break in. The moving orings on the ram and the bolt do have a break in period.

Not so much the orings but the surfaces they ride on getting polished smoother.
