    Check PTG https://pacifictoolandgauge.com/ - they carry '700 bolts that are probably better than the originals. Settle in for a long wait - they aren't fast, but the product has always been good,...

    On the other hand, if you plug those holes with shrapnel, or, say, a Sako extractor, it could become unsafe - nothing to do with the bolt itself failing.

    You sure you've got 12L14???

    I have not found threads in 12L14 to strip out any more readily than those in mild steel. "What to you is moderate tension" is meaningless and condescending - threads have torque specs. Ignore...

    Tagged for interest

    I've seen large primers bushed to small, but that's *quite* different to bushing a .50 primer to a puny LMR. I can't imagine it would work well (assuming a 'normal' BMG load), but I've been wrong...
