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.

Just wonderin...

Well it's all over now. I'll have a BIG, FAT BAT in 5-7.

Re: BAT Action Owners ??

You sure can! I didn't have tons of options for a 408 case, and BAT was my second choice after a Barnard. When I saw the price of the Barnard; BAT then became my 1st choice. I always thought BAT the the most expensive.

L2R Model L 10" 1.250"x16tpi Round 2.0" 3.80" 6lbs 4oz.

Re: BAT Action Owners ??

I have a 10 inch "L" two inch dia. BAT on my HG....80 lbs.

That, my friend, is going to be one kick ass hunting gun. My guess is it's going to weigh in at around 16# w/o scope on an A5 stock. Not sure that is going to be your choice on stocks, but I love mine!!

That is a touch heavy for my old bones to carry around.
