    I saw a website awhile back where a gunsmith was fluting remington 700 bolts. It looked good, but how would that effect the strength of the action. It is a 300 win mag, but I plan on building a 338 rum or 338 edge using it eventually.

    It doesn't affect the strength of the action of bolt as all the stress is applied to the lugs and not the bolt body.

    You may also wish to look at the web site www.twistedbarrel.com they offer some interesting styles of fluting both to barrels and bolts

    Cody,
    Here are some pictures of some of the fluting and oversized bolt knobs I have done. The picture with the single bolt is a new pattern I just finished writing a program for. I have also had Karl Campfeld helical flute some barrels for me as my CNC mill is not large enough for fluting barrels and he did a great job with quick turnaround time.
