    Hey guys, always loved the look of spiral fluted bolts. Wanting to send off the bolt in my 700 300rummy. Who has personal experience with a company that does a reliable and reasonably priced job? Thanks for your time! xxboomstikk

    Twisted barrel
    When a few other gunsmith said they couldn't flute the bolt on my HS Precision TB said no problem. Had the bolt fluted Teflon coated and back to me in a few weeks. Pricing is listed on his web page. I'll gladly use him again.

    I really liked doing business with Twisted Barrel. Awesome quality.

    If you are on as tight a budget as you claim, the money for a fluted bolt could be better spent in another direction. "Kewl" is OK but does nothing for accuracy.

    Yeah I understand. I'm currently content with a factory CDL RUM throwing .4s consistantly. Originally wanted to rebarrel but can't make myself when it shoots good light.

    a factory rifle that shoots in the .4's deserves to remain unmolested.
