Lap m700 bolt lugs?

I picked up a new rem 700 sps stainless 25-06 last week. As I was home sick yesterday I decided to give it a good once over. I wanted to know how much contact the bolt lugs were actually making, so I put some magic marker on the back of the lugs and closed the bolt. I moved the handle just to the point that it was going to unlock about ten times and then removed it. I noticed that the one lug has virtually no contact and the other has a bit more, but really not very much.

Should I lap the lugs? If so, what is suitable for doing this? I know that if you go too far it can cause headspace problems, so I'm kinda hesitant. Any advice would be great.
