Does anyone know where to get a headspace spring tang for the 8mm or 30-06 barrel? I think they?re similar. I have tried using the Israeli 308, but it's different. I tried modifying it, but ended up destroying it.

Thanks for the reply. Dan didn't have anything. I called Ohio Ord., and ordered a 30-06, which looks like it would work on the 8mm.

Correct me if I'm wrong. The '06 barrel headspace notches differ from a 308 Izzy barrel and the 308 spring tang doesn't seat in an '06 notch. If the 8mm barrels are made with the Izzy pattern the 308 spring works, but if made to the '06 pattern they don't. Is that correct?
