    Well...it's not too tight dimensionally. I'd like it to cycle a bit cleaner as it's an ejector and the bolt travels a bit further. -Al

    Use Mobil 1 0-20 on the bolt body and Mobil 1 grease on the lugs and cocking ramp...... slicker than snot on a door knob.... Jim

    I am currently chambering a nitrided Borden BRM. It is the smoothest (least prone to bind) BR action I've ever handled.

    I use a Borden also BRMXD and I still use Mobil 1 on it. it was recoated and it does wear off. The oil and grease prolongs the life of the coating he uses..... jim

    Notice I said smooth-EST

    Still ain't smooth like no 30-40 Nardviggian Kragg..... nor even a Finnlander T3 built today for that matter

    Got the Anschutz stuff. Applied according to instructions.
    Kroil is slipperier. Next would be Steve Theye's bolt lube.

    Not in my experience. Did you happen to treat action interior as well ?

    Mine is really smooth after the cocking ramp was done and it was coated again. The two you say are smooth but won't shoot with the Border, so to get something you give up something ...... Jim
