Fluted bolt for Savage/Stevens

Do any of you guys know of a good gunsmith that will flute a Savage bolt? Or do you know anybody that has one allready fluted. I have a 300 win mag and I am trying to skinny the fat girl up. I know I could go short action but why change a good thing. Any advice would be great thanks guys

I have a 4 axis CNC mill more than capable of doing this work and three months ago I bought a $600 dollar insert cutter just for this purpose.

What kinda fluting can you turn out? What's your price range? I was thinking about getting a bolt fluted also.

It's identical to the fluting done on a Nesika brand bolt. $175.00+shipping and it'll be out of the shop within 72 hours.

I have a bolt from Kampfeld's, awesome work, but I don't think they can beat a 72 hour TAT!

Re: Fluted bolt for Savage/Stevens

The Savage action is not the first choice for a lite action...Heck even the Stevens will go 6Żlbs without scope for the short action and very light tupperware.
Freds SSS flutes are almost more cosmetic than funtion as he only has a 3 ax They look great though and will not double the cost of an action.
