    Marks?

    Why?, What for?,. Your opinions.

    Probably a gunsmith marked the bolts that way & put matching ones somewhere on the actions to ensure that they could be identified & kept as matched units.
    Just an engineer's take on it - no specific rifle experience to back up my ideas.

    I did baulk at a mates suggestion, maybe done to raise a surface, I was more in the ballpark of proof maybe, but hardness testing didn't cross my mind .. makes a certain amount of sense though.
