    Hawkins Oberndorf BDL Bottom Metal and Remington Spring

    I assume you figured this out by now but it should work fine! If not, it's only $8 to get a new spring.

    Bighorn Origin question... etc...

    Where did you end up on this .300 Dakota? I'm wrestling between a Kelbly Atlas and the Bighorn/Zermatt Origin action for a .300 Win Mag build that I can also use for .280 AI. I want to roll my own barrels too and both have shouldered pre-fit options. What I'm learning so far is this: Origin...
