Default Break in oil

I'm building a 535 now and was looking for opinions on the best break in oil. I'm running roller lifters, so the cam isn't my concern. Looking for the the best protection for bearings and the fastest ring seal. Thanks.

I have used 30 weight VR-1 with Schneider Cams Formula 2 break in additive.
Comp sells a similar product.
All the cam manufacturers insist on using a break in oil supplement with their flat tappet cams.

But the supplement helps all the moving parts to get safely through the high friction of initial start up & wearing in.
Schneider also has an additive ,Formula 3, that they recommend using at every oil change.
