A good bet for out-of-the-box performance. I really like the Savage Model 12 action as well.

    Good reccomendations all around.

    The only lefty Savage I found on their site is the 11/111 Trophy Hunter XP package deal and I did find that the Remington 700 SPS Varment comes in a LH version.

    There is a rifle that I had never even heard of until I signed on here and thats, Tikka. What do yall think about it?

    Never owned one, but I hear good things. If you plan on customization later on, the Remington 700 or Savage would be the way to go. And as I am not a Savage fan, I will continue to pull for the 700's.

    Nothing wrong with any of the guns listed.....However, we all have our favorites.

    Tika, is a quality rifle but the sporter weight barrels are not much for the long range department. The tactical with the heavy barrel may be better. This is coming from someone who had 3 of them 243, 308, and 300wsm sold all of them and bought rem 700's and built a 7rem mag on 700 action. I havn't even shoot my 5r 300wm yet, yet been to busy playin with the 308. After market upgrades are all but unavailable for the Tika's another reason to go rem. Never owned a savage, and have no desire too, so can't tell you anything about them.

    Savage 12 BVSS
    Savage 12 Long Range Precision
    Savage 10 FCP McMillan
    Remington 700SS 5R Milspec
    Remington 700 SPS Varmint (trued)
    FNH SPR A1



    Except for maybe the FNH which may be closer to $15-1600. If your right-eyed, try learning right handed you'll have more options. just my 2-c.
