Sorry, I had to pick on you a little bit Plus I figured it could give everyone an idea of where you are leaning. Hopefully this time you have got your mind set! Looking forward to see what you came up with.

They have been built with many a round down tube on Rem. action.Look at 338 thread on here by Ward Brian.But I was advised by 2 smiths not to build on a WBY mark V. I admit Im spoiled with 2 Defiance,full customs
