Default looking for a new left handed bolt action

I am looking to buy a new bolt action hunting rifle. Looking at something about a 300 win mag or sort mag. i want it synthetic stock fluted barrel and a detachable magazine. I want something good quality and accurate.

I was contemplating selling my Browning Micro Hunter. But it has a wood stock and is in 325 WSM. It sports a Burris Short Mag scope with Ballistic Plex reticle. Would include reloading dies, any tips I have on hand and somewhere around 200 rounds of ammo if you're willing to pay the Hazmat fees. This rifle easily shoot <1 MOA with some 3 shot groups that were under 1/2 MOA with 200 gr Nosler Accubonds.
Drop me a pm if you're interested and we can discuss price.

As a "southpaw" myself I am always looking....LOL I even tend to simply buy left handed guns I come across because I can.

Tikka and Savage both seem to offer a good variety of lefty's and I have been happy with Browning as well. I have a Savage Model 10 in 308 and a Model 11 (lightweight) in 7mm-08...also have a Tikka T-3 Stainless Lite in 270 WSM that I really love! I also picked up a Browning A-Bolt Medallion in 25 WSSM a couple years ago and really like how it handles and shoots but it too is a wood stocked rifle. If yer stuck on synthetic look at Tikka and Savage in my opinion...good triggers, smooth actions, detachable mags and accurate.

Being left handed it seems I always had to adapt to the guns I had. I bought the left hand Savage Weather Warrior, accu-trigger, etc, and finally found a comfortable and excellent shooting rifle. Mine is in the .308. Must admit it did take a little time getting used to the left hand configuration after shooting right hand rifles for years.
Good luck.

i own a synthetic .300 winmag tikka t3 with a stainless barrel and while its not fluted it shoots wonderfully. its a very light firearm so i added a limbsaver and it does a great job of keeping my arm attached to my body.
i would guess its slightly more expensive cousin the sakko would preform admirably and does have a fluted barrel as well and deserves a look.
good luck!

Savage has been a left-handed shooter's best friend for decades. Reputation for accuracy and the accutrigger is great.

I have a Savage Weather Warrior 16 FCSS in .204 (right handed).


For all the reasons stated above plus mine has the "Accu stock".


Certainly one of my favorite rifles !!!

Another nod to Savage. I shoot a LH Savage Weather Warrior in 30'06. It's awesome and accurate.
