Bolt Face Mix Up
So I am currently the owner of two Tikka T3X rifles.
One in a 30-06 and one in a 6.5 Creedmoor.
I have a nasty/good habit of removing the bolt and magazine when I am at the range to assist with keeping my barrels cool. At some point I believe I MAY have mixed up the two bolts. Now my concern is what effect that will have if any on the rifle function. My next statements may be incorrect so definitely looking for some feedback.
Considering Tikka does not change the bolt for action length and would only change bolt face size/diameter for the particular chambering are the two bolts interchangeable? I believe the 30-06 has a bolt face of 0.470” and the 6.5 CM is 0.473”. Or do they use the same bolt face for each considering there is only 3 thou difference?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
