Shooting left handed I can work my left handed bolt actions faster than my right handed bolt action rifles. Of course, that is after many years of practice with Rem. 700 BDL LH and Browning A-Bolt SS LH rifles. Before those rifles I just reached across the rifle behind the scope with my left hand . . . a little slow but not too bad. Best example: on a Wyoming mule deer my Ruger 77 RH .243 didn't fire when I pulled the trigger; I worked the bolt with my left hand, fired and dropped the buck. Problem was handloads in new WW brass with primer pockets too deep (discovered AFTER the hunt.)
