Limited Options for Lefty


I am in the market to buy a hunting rifle and have a few options but know little about the sport or the variety of firearms available to me.

Here is what I do know...

I want a left-handed bolt action rifle in 30-06

Here are my options...

Savage 116 with AccuStock and AccuTrigger for around $650.

Remington 700 CDL

Remington 700 SPS

Ruger M77 Hawkeye

Are there others I should consider?

What are your takes on these guns?

Your opinions, experience, knowledge is much appreciated.

You'd get more feedback if it's in "the art of the rifle" section
"Combined synergy of a man and rifle is matchless, the steadiness of hand and acuity of vision, and finally the art of knowing how to make the rifle an extension of the body, all equate to the ultimate synthesis of man and machine."

I own a lefty 110 Savage 7mm Rem Mag. Great gun, very, very accurate and reliable. I've been very happy with it and would buy another Savage without question.

You should be able to find lefty versions of most major brands. But look into weatherby, howa, cz, winchester, and Thompson center. All have bolt guns and I believe they all have left hand options. I know you want a bolt action but a good option for other lefty fellows I know is the Thompson center encore pro hunter. It is a break action single shot designed to be ambidextrous. I love mine. Also gives you options for different barrels and cartridges for the same action.
You can't fix stupid....however ignorance can be cured through education!

makes the Gunsite Scout in LH.

Also, try Sako, Browning, Savage, Winchester, Weatherby (including the Vanguard series) Remington, and Tika.

I am a leftie, so I feel your pain.
