Has anyone done this yet? I know they don’t offer the option on the origin like they do on the SR3, but is there any mechanical reason to not do this? Needing the length for a 6.5prc on a short action.

I ask BHA the same question, Ray answered and said with BDL limited to shortish COAL.

For max COAL then DBM setup without binder plate.

Found some info on the hide where it’s been done. I ordered a Wyatt’s PRC box and my Smith is going to look it over and see if it can be done.

Please keep us updated ! I’m in the same boat. I currently run the arc mags and am running them at 2.970 with is .020 off with 140 vld’s. Wyatt’s showed 2.990 for the prc box , the extra .020 would be nice

This is the main reason I'm hung up on the Origin and looking harder at the Gunwerks GRB action, it's listed as having a Wyatt box cut so you get full length PRC right out of the box. My hang up with the GRB is the barrel threads they use, not sure why they didn't just use savage threads, it would have made their action way more appealing.

Does anyone know if the Defiance Tenacity is designed for the Wyatt length?

Tagging in to see what others have to say. I am really wanting a long action origin to build a mid weight 300wm with hopes to shoot the 215s out of it.

Would like to be able to load them longer than 3.6”

Gunsmith just sent me this. Should get my hands on it in a day or two. Wyatts box is in and functioning.

Yeah also curious if the origin action required any modification to accept the extended Wyatt.

I should get the rig in my hands tomorrow. I'll post some pics and get the down low from him on what had to be done.
