98k bolts should be blued or parked
I disagree. There are many, many WWII photos which clearly show 98k Mausers with bright bolt bodies, not just bright bolt handles from wear.
I can't begin to tell you what percentage were, or "should have been" blued, but I can tell you that many were not.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
