Reaming a Rem 700 bolt race way to .715"
I was digging through my stuff and came accross a reamer that I had tried to rig into a race way reamer and abandoned the idea.
Anyway , I was looking at the Dave Manson accurizing stuff in the Brownells book and saw that it uses a .715" reamer to ream the bolt race way. I know that the common practice is to ream it to .705 and get the PTG bolt to fit it. I measured a 5 actions I have at the house and all of them measured between .703"-.705" and one measured .708" , all are bone stock , so that got me to wondering if it woulden't be better to ream them to .715" instead.
does anybody know if PTG will make a .715" bolt for the rem 700's or will I have to sleeve the one I have?
any of you guys have any experiance with this or have any thoughts??
