.375 H&H left-handed bolt action makers?

I've got an invite to Canada to hunt big moose in northern Alberta (with possible wapiti and maybe bear!). After doing some research, I've settled on the .375 H&H as a good choice. But I'm left-handed. Savage has been good to me in the past, having a real selection of left-handed rifles, but they don't make a .375 H&H.
Browning has an A-bolt available but that would be my last choice as my only Browning was a certified lemon.
The few others I've seen have been custom specials in the $2000+ range, pricy Blasers, etc.
Any ideas or suggestions?
Might any of the current production leftie Savages be convertable by a custom gunsmith?
I'm all ears on this one....

Thank you for the tip, I'll see if they've got anything to handle the big .375!

i looked on the site, and they don't have .375 barrels listed, but i'm sure you could have them specially make one.

or you could always get a ruger no.1.

I thought about the Ruger, plenty to like, but if we go after bear I want a quicker follow-up shot than it can give me....
