I'm sure you will get plenty of professional responses.
For the do it yourselfer you use something like a cratex wheel the size of a pencil eraser and you put rouge on it.When it touches the bolt it leaves a small swirl.You can spin it in a drill but I'm sure a mill would work even better.
The gunsmith will tell you how to index all those little swirls in a nice row and how to space them for best looks.

You will defiantly need a jig to hold the bolt in place while doing those little circles, and they are available from Brownells, and probably other places too.. They will also have the Cratex rods to do the circles...... A good drill press is a plus, don't even try it with a electric drill.....

+1 on the jig to hold the bolt. I use a small wire brush with an o-ring around the end with lapping compound chucked into a drill press instead of a cratex wheel. The jig will proberly index the bolt for a uniform and symmetrical finish.
