who does bolt fluting?

Last time I built a rifle on a 700 action, BAT spiral fluted the bolt for me. They no longer do this and the builder I'm using doesn't either. Any suggestions where I can send the bolt for spiral fluting?

Nate Dagley at Straight Shot Gunsmithing did this one. He has some pics of ones he has done on his website.
He can also do an interrupted type fluting.

Last time I contacted Kampfeld, he was 2 years booked and not accepting any work but that has been awhile. What do you think of this guy's Vortex fluting?

Vortex Bolt Fluting

I really like it.
