Cerakote

Anyone from this site do cerakote?
If so so is it feasable to do a BAT VS model action as in does the tight tolerance couse issues with the bolt raceway. Building a tactical style rifle with an A5, BAT VS single shot action with Benchmark SS 8 twist 3 groove in a Lilja tactical contour. Chambered in a 6 Dasher and I dont like shiny metal.

    I just Cerakoted my BAT 8.5. I shot a light coat on the bolt body, lugs, and raceway.
    After assembly, the bolt was tight about 3/4 of the way in the action. I lubed it to prevent galling and worked it a few times. Almost like lapping it in... After a dozen or so cycles, It was workable. It will wear in with use..
