Everybody has there ways, all good for me 250mi so far and I have had the car to 120 a few times and rpms over 5 some times, 60-70 mph and dropping from 6th to 4th and gassing it not quite to the floor yet.
I think the motor needs a bit of slow, med, and some stomping to get use to what your going to put her thru. I wait till 500mi before i let rpms get to 6 for evey gear. That is for later. I broke in my 392 2014 Core the same way, just saying.
Just keep he rpms down and vary it a bit. if you have lots of interstate freeway driving, every so often, take one of the exits, drive around in the city for 5-10 minutes too. Stop the car let her idle for 1-2 minutes, then shut it off.
Start her back up in a minute or two and head back to freeway.
Adds a bit of time to the drive, but you are breaking her in, so it's worth it.
On a side note. Supposedly 6200 rpm are the rev limiter, and the peak power is 6000 rpm.
My Hellcat, which doesn't even have 500 miles on her yet, has the redline starting at 5750 on the tach.
What's up with that?
