    Hello,
    I have almost 11k rounds through an action and I was curious- Is there anything I can do to for the wear. Respectfully, I don't want to hear about what I should have done or lubed it a certain way or with a certain lube. That time has passed... I want to know if I can send an action in to get "re-milled" or trued again? Thank you.

    Where is the wear you reference located?

    Pun not intended, I found it unavailable.

    What kind of action do you have ? Does your firing pin strike the center of the primer, right or left port, fixed recoil lug or floating lug, two lug or three lug on your bolt ????????

    Stiller TAC300 action. It just isn't as smooth as it was and it just feels a little loose, my accuracy is still good. My firing pin hits center, fixed recoil lug, and 2 lugs on my bolt. I wasn't sure if there was something that could be done to keep tolerances tight/close.

    That action should be good to go. Stiller actions aren't known for being the slickest but are good. It's the QPQ finish that makes things sticky if you don't pull straight back. I usually put a light coat of good oil on the bolt and it holds up for a while.

    You might consider getting the bolt melonited. May slick it up some. Just a thought. :D:D

    Its good stuff. Little dab on the bolt itself (not too much) and grease on the lugs and itll be like a new action
