Edge of Hell....
I'll not ever buy another Stiller.....I'd like to try a Borden someday. Surgeon's are sweet but I would not use one for a sub 8 lb build. Nesika, BAT, Stolle, are all superb but are all too tight for a hunting rifle, IMO. Lately I'm thinking it's pretty hard to beat a trued up Remington with the prices of custom actions going through the roof.

Specialty rigs not withstanding, I find my needs are easily met with the Rem Model 7, Rem 700, and Rem 700 Ti........A good smith certianly helps!

Anyone know what BAT uses for their bolt clearances? Borden uses .002, and I don't think it's too tight for a hunting rifle!

Not sure the measurement, but mine was such a tight tolerence, cerekote could not be sprayed on action/bolt. KG was applied (still has slight friction). No play at all! Ackleyfan, obviosly your thinking of buying the best action made so have Bat turn down the bolt to your specs.

I don't like the diamond flutes on my Bat, but it is necessary if it gets dirty.I'm hoping the bolt-firing pin mods help my Bat. Stiller is Meloniting the bolt bodies.

Bat flutes are such a high smooth polish, the CM never get rust un-like my Predator did. Not familiar with Melonite & Stiller's new process, but I think it's 'sorta a high temp salt bath I've heard which helps prevent rust? Also heard it darkens SS/CM...correct Butch?

I shoulda took chemistry in school & I'd know all this chit. smile

Yes, Melonite is similar to the process performed on Glock slides. It is a hardening process that leaves the steel black when completed. It's not a coating. Here's a pic of my Stiller Predator 6mmbr repeater

Actually it is a low[900deg] salt bath. I have a few barrels that have the treatment. Does 2 things, more corrosion resistance and much longer barrel life. It has not affected the way the barrels shoot, either good or bad. I'll bet on a bolt it is very slick.

Yes, it is a repeater with the Bryant mod. It feeds pretty well, especially since playing with the position of the spring under the follower. I have a freind who has a few 6brs on Remmy actions, and I love the positive ejection I get as well with the M16 extractor
