Yeah. If you flute a bolt you increase the likelyhood of cross threading. It's important to have the nut lapped to help prevent cross threading and thus a loose and sloppy fit.

Dang I looked for an update, thread took a turn.

Supposedly fluted bolts are better for could environments.

Ounces = pounds

No one ever batted an eye when someone Cerakoted their gun a certain way.
 
From that fluting service website:


BOLT FLUTING

All fluting is done on a Haas TM1 with full fourth axis capabilities. Bolt fluting allows for a lower coefficient of drag during the cycling procedure.
The flutes also give a place for grit and grime to go without binding up your action.
