Firing-pin hole?

What size should the firing-pin hole in a 700 Rem. bolt-face measure?

TIA,

Jim

The ones I've bothered to measure were between .070" and .080". I have two PT&G bolts here and they both measure .075" and the factory replacement pins work great.

I have Greg Tannels pin kits in all ine and the one I have out now the firing pin measures .072" right where it starts to make the radius to the tip

hole size

The firing-pin hole measures 0.078 now. The powder-charge is 10% below max..
I will pull the FP out of the bolt and have a look-see.

Thanks,

Jim
