Ran across a Rem 700 short action chambered in 300 Blackout with different grove
In front bolt lugs. This is new to me and wonder if anybody else seen this and reasoning for it.
Appreciate any input you can share.

If you clean it well and mark it with black marker, does it wipe off? Could have been from previous owner or poor smith modifications. Odd indeed

Poor machining. A 'factory' .300BO? On re-barrel installs, I skim cut the front of the lugs as well as the back contact surfaces. It just makes measuring consistent for both lugs for barrel clearance. They never measure the same, from the face of the action, from the factory.

You need to do youtube videos. With your experience, you could make a little money since we'd all watch
