Oversize bolts

A recent article on this board referred to oversized bolts as being a better way to correct bolt wobble than sleeving. Does anyone know where these bolts come from? Remington or Savage?

Here is the link. At the top of the page there is a notation from PTG / Dave Kiff that they can grind them oversize. PTG is a Remington 700 modification candy store:

Re: Oversize bolts

Is anyone making oversized savage bolts yet or is this just a remmy deal?

As far as I know, Pacific Tool has these bolts for the Rem 700 only.

Re: Oversize bolts

Oversize I believe is the cleanest way but will require headspace consideration. Sleeving your existing bolt works equally as well and has the advantage of being able to sleeve just the rear where most of the wobble occurs. The disadvantage of the oversized bolt is the action may be prone to siezing up with a bit of dust. Sleeving your own bolt will also allow putting a bit of cam on the sleeves to allow full clearance and only having it tight when you actually close the bolt. There is no one best. I should add if you are doing a full blueprinting and changing the bolt you really ought to consider a custom action.
