Yep, mine has a fluted bolt. Never experienced the binding issue though.
I have been thinking for some time having Karl put a McMillan
on it, Ceracote the entire rifle and lighten up the trigger. The factory barrel seems good and I like the caliber (7mm Rem Mag), so I thought I would have him chop it down to 25" and re-crown.
I don't here of much custom work being done on the Abolts, so that's why I'm asking the members here their opinion, before I throw my money away.
