Specifically on the inside of the receiver and outside of the bolt just to smooth things up a bit?

Yep, clean it up real good with a Scotch-Brite pad, squirt it down/ clean it up with Gun Scrubber, polish it with Flitz, and a light coat of your favorite lube.

I used oiled 600 grit wet/dry then 1200 grit then 2000 on my bolt. Smoothed it out real nice.

Not sure about others, but my receiver is smooth but definitely not all flat inside the receiver.
Still a few raised areas, gaps and gullies.

I've used 800 grit sandpaper, but not in the receiver or bolt. I use ScotchBrite on the receiver, and usually don't need to polish the bolt. I use 800 grit on the sear, hammer, disconnector, trigger return plunger, and a few other small parts, usually followed up by 1200 grit.

Try a Kidd guide rod and spring. Might smooth things up a lot.

Never seen 800 grit sandpaper. 600 will work well. Maybe even 400. 200 is way to course. You are looking to remove any globs of paint and smooth down machine marks. If those marks are deep, just make it slick to the touch. You don't want to make things slopping inside.
