I don't own one myself but since it shoots smokeless powder I would immagine you would clean it as often as a centerfire rifle.
You might have some residue from the plastic sabots that could degrade accuracy, that's about the only difference I can see.

Leave it dirty. If it starts to open it up note how many shots it took to get there. Then you can clean it and fire a shot or two to dirty it up and then know you have approximately "xx" number of shots till you need to clean it. I give mine a good scrubbing once or twice a year depending on number of shots, days afield, and weather conditions. If it's raining hard and know it got damp inside I run a two drop solvent patch two or three times down the bore and then a dry patch.
