Limited choices in left hand.
-Tikka T3, but they will be a bit on the heavy side for recoil.
-Browning A or XBolt, but they come with a non sensical 23" bbl, and the lousiest trigger out there.
- Savage, not pretty, trigger could be better.

Here's my Savage 11FL in a Boyds Laminate, trigger has been tuned up, and it shoots very well.



I haven't taken this beauty out in quite some time.

The right offer may loosen my heart strings for her.....

I've got my .325 WSM up for sale on here, but I'm actually in the process of getting a .300 WSM barrel for it as that seems to be a more popular caliber.



There's a thread in the buy/sell section, which is a good place to start looking.

If you can find one a Model 70 would be my choice.

Default I was in the same place a while ago

Being a lefty, and looking for a .300 Magnum, is a dilemma.

I finally settled on a 40 year old, German made, Weatherby .300 magnum Mark V lefty, as I could not find a .300 Winchester magnum - pre-short magnum days.

This got me started on hand-loading, as the cost back then for a box of cartridges was outrageous.

I am very happy with the rifle, drives tacks!

I have both and actually prefer the 325. But you're right the 300 is far more popular as well as a better bullet selection.

It's my first big rifle so I want to make sure that it's going t function properly and have enough punch. It's a real struggle being a lefty but I suppose patience is a virtue!

It's not as bad as you think. I have several in differant brands. You just have to keep your eyes open on the buy and sell. I've seen several lately on cgn buy and sell.
