    Ive got one, and Ive used it, but I was under the impression (and conclusion from unfortunate experience) that the Field Test Bolt is the same as using good normal bolt with a "Field" gage (normally...

    I may be wrong headed, but Ive come to trust the "low number" '03 still extant. I think many saw action, or at least use, during WWII, but Im doubtful that the ones still around suffer from...
