bolt question: my ghog hunting buddy has a factory savage .243 that has a very slight dished- in surface to it's bolt face. fired cases have primers slightly buldged around the firing pin indention but no leakage of gases. his other savages have flat bolt faces. he's contacting savage but would like info from shooters. thanks.

Most Savage bolt faces are "dished" to some extent from the polishing process, the larger ones being the worst. You may also find a slight chamfer on the edge of the firing pin hole. A simple facing cut cleans them up.

You might also see the firing pin tip is ground on a taper allowing a gap between the pin hole and pin tip at about .020" protrusion, roughly the amount a primer stops the firing pin forward travel. Reshaping the tip to about a .020" radius allows the full diameter of the tip to remain in the pin hole and eliminate cratering provided they're not because hot loads.
