Always trying to make improvements... we’ve been working on a more efficient way to make our bolts.
After weeks of working on the first one made with the new programming and on an different machine, I did some testing.
This bolt was not heat treated, and had .002” less headspace than the bolt I use with this rifle.
I was shooting my 6 BR, our Vector action with switch barrel capability, and hand tight barrel.
First shot was center target, had different scope on last time I shot it.
Left group, normal bolt, and typical of this rifle.
I then screwed the barrel off, then hand tightened it back on... switched to the new bolt that was not heat treated and was .002” less headspace. Was a bit tight to close on live round. Shot the group on top right. You can see the blue Dykem still on the test bolt.
Groups shot with front bipod and rear bag.
Confirmation that we are able to now manufacture bolts more efficiently without any degradation to accuracy.
