Metal doesn't just 'peel'. That'd be a huge issue for me too.
The issue with the Gunparts bolt head is that they don't mention any dimensions of 'em. Means you have to buy a fistful to try with a headspace gauge(you'll need a set, not just a No-Go or Field too) until you find one that is good. Just like a No. 1 Lee-Enfield.
I wouldn't 'work with some guy from E-Bay' either(aside from E-Bay being rabidly anti-firearm ownership). You need a smithy who knows Mosins. Dunno how prevalent those are, anywhere, never mind Texas.
Like mehavey says, excessive rim clearance cannot be solved in handloading. Needed to be bigger. snicker.
Spelling and grammar count!
