I'm looking for some urgent advice.
I've recently purchased a nylon 'Radar' bolt holder for the bolt on my .243, which I store in my cabinet alongside the bolt for my .270, which resides in a leather 'Radar' bolt holder.
I've never had any problems with the leather holder, but twice now when I've come to take the .243 bolt out it has some significant rust on it.
The nylon holder is brand new and the first time it happened it had never been outside and the bolt had been in the cabinet for quite some time, happily living in the leather holder until I transferred it.
I'm looking for some input into what you suggest is causing the rust? While my cabinet is in an internal cupboard, the cupboard itself gets quite cold and I was wondering whether it is possible that some condensation is forming and getting trapped inside the nylon holder? It has a thin neoprene lining for those who aren't familiar with this brand.
Also, is there any way to polish up my bolt, as it is now marked from where I have removed the rust. Is this something I can do myself, or is it a straightforward job for a 'smith? I'm well cheesed off to be honest!
