    Use an old sock.

    Drop in the bolt, give the sock a couple of twists to holt it in the foot then roll down the section above to keep everything tidy.

    Tidy!

    I seperate my bolt from the rifle so it reduces the possibility if someone breaks in if they arnt together its a dangerous as a pipe or piece of wood in the wrong hands.

    I keep the bolts wrapped up in a cloth inside a plastic container hidden .

    Don't MTM produce a plastic bolt storage box ? I recall seeing them for sale years ago but I'm not sure if they still make them.

    I might be mistaken, but I thought the bolt was subject to the same security requirements as rifle and ammunition. I do store my bolt separately from the rifles, though; but just on the shelf in the cabinet with the shotguns.

    My legal suppositions aside, I am not keen on the idea of storing steel bits for any length of time in contact with cloth (or leather, for that matter).

    When I'm travelling (e.g. to Scotland) with a rifle, I carry the bolt in a bolt-holster on my belt. Can't remember where the bolt-holster came from, but they are fairly commonly available in both leather and Cordura-stuff.

    Anything that stops the metal from free movement of air around it - unless an oily sock - isn't a good idea!

    I've seen some real damage done by that to shot guns kept in leather motor cases or pistols kept in their leather holsters in a gun cabinet.

    I just put mine on the shelf in my ammunition safe. If the shelf is full I put it on top of whatever box of ammunition it doesn't look as if it will fall off of!

    Thanks to all, I will follow up suggestions. I found i had made some money, and being able to tie it to the farm, I thought I may get something a bit fancier than an oily(well used) sock. So before memsab had allocated it (the money), I thought I might try and re-create or wander onto the or what would become the common ground of retail therapy. Having got 'er' down to the computer and she had suggested several results , I was told to ask ' your forum mates'.
    So I will sort this out now, thanks again chaps.
