Yes they will/do bind.
Question.....is your bolt dimond fluted, spiral fluted, strait fluted, or not fluted at all? I have to agree with you.....I have one rifle with a very early build BAT, and the bolt is non fluted. That one gets a bit "gummy" when it gets dirty. But, have several later builds with fluted bolts and have zero problems with dirt.
From what I understand, BAT opened up the tolerances a bit in certin areas of the action on later builds.....just what I have heard.
