Hi guys. Last week I purchased myself a Ruger Precision Rimfire in 22lr.
I am taking it up to the range for the first time tomorrow.
As its my first brand new rifle I have never run in a barrel before.
I was just wondering if there is anything special I should do?

I would run a patch down the bore to insure that there's no debris from manufacturing left in there. I always field strip all new guns, clean and lube, and then go shooting.

Clean , lube and shoot... no running is required !

Bring a few different brands of ammo , 22's are sometimes picky about what they like.

Have fun !

Agree with the above...

My RPRR 22LR sometimes has a lil resistance while closing the bolt & chambering a round. It's the mag not being seated properly. If you are using a 15rd mag it needs to be slightly pulled rearward to level out the mag with the bolt. Sometimes occurs with a 10rd mag. There are some YT videos of folks having issues with this and their "fixes"...

The bolt will also loosen up after use, but lube helps a lot. The rifle is a good shooter, just figure out the flavor of ammo that it likes. Mine prefers Gemtech 42gr subs.

Thanks for the input guys.
I gave the rifle and bolt a good rub down with some G96 on a rag and cleaned the bore with some G96 on a bore snake.
I have about 8 different type of ammo to test, a mixture of high and standard velocity.
