My observation is watching others shoot at 10yds and under who can tell the difference. On the other hand 50yds would be a good testing distance but the very few have the ability to be consistent at that range.

Update:

I shot a 1500 round training session over two days last November, and another 1000 round one this past March with my 2013 M&P9, with no cleaning of the bore throughout both courses.

Accuracy never varied any that I could tell.

I have a Wilson Combat barrel in the pistol, but I'd expect similar results with a stock S&W barrel.

Back in the early days of the M&P pistols, we went for as many as 6 months between cleanings, taking classes plus lots (and lots) of training. At 25 yards, a freshly cleaned bore may have given me some problems for the first couple/few rounds, but the grouping potential of the next 3,000 or so rounds would be pretty much identical. Once it gets to about 6,000 there's a small drop off in both accuracy and reliability. At 5-7 yards, I really can't tell any difference between disgustingly filthy and freshly cleaned. 1 hole is one hole either way.

Back in my Army days, I shot on a pistol team.
We were issued AMU built 1911 target pistols.
Armorers told us to never field strip them.
Punch the bore, lube, that was it.
Was told that it would take time for the gun to settle in again.
Did it make any difference?
At my lever, likely not.
At the Gunny Zins level, seems likely that it would.
For speed game by us mere mortals, it matters no a bit.
