    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.[​IMG]
    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.

    Paul AKA boltfluter does awesome work, fast turn around, and the fluting is superb.

    What forum is "SH?" Snipershide?

    Anyway, after searching more, there's no shortage of places to send my bolts. Thank you for the replies.

    Chad Dixon does mine.

    Great work, cheap, fast turnaround.

    He's currently doing them for $45 as a SH group buy.

    The group buy form is on his website.
