Demilled M14 bolts

Has anybody heard anything about reactivating "demilled" M14 bolts that have had their firing pin holes welded shut? Has anybody tried it? Has anybody heard of any failures among those who have redrilled the firing pin holes? I've got an M14/M1A with a bolt thats got an eroded bolt face (the prior owner apparently let some brass go long enough to let gas back around the primer to cut the bolt face) and what with the prices of bolts these days, I'm wondering if these might be the way to go for maybe 1/10th the cost. (found a source that's offering 4/$50)

Thx.
