Is this normal for the bolts that come in DelTon kits? The bolt is marked VTM.Order was placed 5-17-09 and shipped 10-20-09
I continued the match with another shooters bolt and after ~30 rds there was an obvious difference in the wear pattern on the same two lugs, surrounding the extractor, that broke on my Del-Ton bolt. Is this an indication of a problem with my barrel/barrel extension?
Call DTI bright and early Monday. Their new bolts are MPI and HTI tested.
