    My TL2-SA Dasher runs 100% - no issues feeding nor ejecting. I ran the TL3-SA Dasher in several local PRS-style matches, being conscious of needing to work the bolt briskly, and had several failures of the empty case to clear the ejection port. Finally said to 'ell with it, pulled the Dasher bbl, and replaced it with a fresh Krieger 1-7.5tw 5R chambered for 6x47 Lapua - which to date hasn't had a single case that didn't flip right out of the port. If your TL3 works well with the Dasher, I'm happy for you....I for one wish Bighorn hadn't discontinued the TL2 series of actions.

    I too wish Bighorn would have kept making the TL2. I would have had 3-4
    The Origin isn't as smooth. I guess that's why it cost less.

    @flatlander I would reach out to Aaron at Zermatt. Some Colorado boys have 10k-30k+ each with the TL3/Dasher combo (Scotty,Kevin,Fred,Etc,Etc). I bet Bighorn/Zermatt will get you fixed up!
