Re: Another action blueprinting question ? bolt sleveing
I would not recommend sleeving an action and I personally will not sleeve actions.If you are supporting a heavier barrel and want to take the stress off the action, I would suggest either a barrel block or a barrel "V" block bedding system. as far as bolt sleeving I again do not sleeve bolts it is not that I am not capable of doing so....here is what I do in my shop when doing complete acurizing of a Rem.700 action. first,I ream the raceway to .705 then I put the action in my truing jig,dial in to .0001 - .0002 then I single point recut the threads then I true the locking surface. Next I install a PTG custom bolt .7035 which I helical flute prior to instalation. This bolt also comes with the Sako extractor and an oversized bolt handle or handle of your choice. The locking surfaces, action to bolt are also lapped for 99% contact
P.S there is nothing wrong with bolt sleeving as another alternative,I just feel the straight bolt operates a lot smoother and distributes wear over a larger surface area, with the helical flutes causing less surface tension and gives the dust and dirt a place to move to versus embedding in the steel.
without God their is no hope for this country
