Im building a creedmoor and wanting to have the bolt fluted... Are there any cons or things I should consider before sending it off? Im doing this purely for the esthetics. I was wanting to put an oversized bolt knob on it too but noticed after my last hint that my other rifle action kept opening when it was on a sling & I was wearing a backpack.

I don't know if this would help anything while you had it in a shop, but you might ask the gunsmith if it's worth having the lugs squared up and the bolt face squared up. These might not matter unless you're having the action trued up too.

Yes action will be trued. Someone mentioned stuffcan get stuck in the flutes and cause binding when cycling the bolt-
