    Hey Guys,

    I just fluted my bolt in a different style. Looks like a Vortex. What do you think?

    Regards, Paul.

    Nice job. I can't quite figure out though how this is different from the spiral fluting others are doin on bolts and even some barrels.

    Looks to me like it's a flat cut instead of beveled. I like it, what weight savings is gained or lost?

    I think you're right. Either flat or concave. I knew it was different and I liked it but couldn't put my finger quite on it HA! gun)

    That is pretty sexy right there, I like the flats. I have a handful of spiral fluted bolts & am running my first spiral fluted barrel.

    I would imagine the flat flutes would be a little easier on the brass than the spiral flutes (they can be a little on the sharp side)....

    Again, very nice & thanks for sharing.

    Minimal weight savings as not much metal is removed. Regards, Paul.
