I too am a lefty. You mentioned a detachable box. By that I assume you meant a detachable magazine. Savage should have a left hand model with one. Remington makes the 700 with a detachable magazine, but perhaps not in a left hand version. No matter, Cabelas sells the Kwik Klip assembly which converts the 700 BDL to a detachable magazine. It is drop in and easy to install. It may be for long action only in which case you might consider a 30-06. I have used one for years and have a couple of extra magazines (clips.)
