I,m a little confused. Most people Square everything when blueprinting an action and this includes
the locking lugs on the bolt if they are not at 100% engagement and them Lap them for smoothness
(This helps ease the bolt lift).
Like all factory locking lugs they are rarely 100% and in some cases only one lug is in contact.
I have never heard not to square and lap the lugs if they are not in full contact.
In my opinion everything has to be square and true to the bore if you are going to call it blue printed.
Just my opinion
