Default Which buffer and spring for mid-length?

Okay, hopefully my last stupid question before I complete this lefty build. The upper is pretty much done (yay!), and I'm putting a PRS stock on the lower. The barrel is 16" and drilled for a mid-length gas system. Question is, will the bolt cycle correctly if I use a standard rifle spring/buffer, or do I somehow need to use a carbine buffer/spring in a rifle tube?

Cheers!

Generally, you'll use a rifle spring and buffer for the PRS regardless of your gas system.

The choice between rifle spring and buffer or carbine spring and buffer is dependent on the receiver extension (buffer tube) length.

The heavier rifle buffer and lighter spring is the way to go.
You COULD use a Rock River 9mm buffer spacer and run a carbine buffer and spring, but you would be taking a step backwards in progress...
