In my model 8 I shoot the same rcbs 120 with 17 grains of imr4198 for 1782 fps. It functions well and is accurate.

MIwoods,
I checked my buffer spring on the .30. It looks like it may be the same as your original. It is a very tough spring. Those are the dimensions shown on the paper.

Re: Custom 8: Folding Operating Handle & Safety!

There is no hole for the safety lever either. Has the receiver been welded up? The new safety must block the trigger in a different way because there would be no safety rocker either. Very interesting.
