Polishing a bolt will make it operate smoother as long as you don't over do it. To much polishing can reduce the diameter and make it loose in the action.

I like to jewel bolts because it polishes and makes it retain lubricants better.

The SPS Remington bolts and other bolts with a rough black finish really benefit from some sort of polishing.
