The bigger ones are 17/70's and are for the front and rear inner portions of the firing can and the inner o-ring inside the bolt sleeve. the next ones up are 16/70's and are for your bolt sail. Those little red ones are 12's, and I'm not sure their a 70 durometer since they are a different material, and those red ones specifically have a swelling problem so its best to use some Buna 12/70's which are black.

Everyone will have different results. My red orings have not swollen or torn. You will have have to install your bolt and see if it seals properly. If not then just hand pick the right sized orings and you're good to go. Enjoy your new bolt.

^this is true. The majority of reports that I've seen have said that the red ones swell, but some don't for whatever reason. I use Buna 12/70's on mine and it works fine. My red ones swelled eventually. Your gonna have to mess around with the bolt guide o-rings eventually I imagine.
