It would seem to me leaving the battery at home would make you legal. It's what I do, and back in for states or seasons it is legal.

FYI Last fall Idaho changed there regs to read: no electronic devise EXCEPT for lit reticles. So it is a non issue either way. you are fine even with a fully functioning reticle.

Probably not, but it may be possible to get a non inletted stock & have it set up for a LH configuration. I did that with my last McMillan A5, Worked fine. If you are completely set on the GreyBull (great stock) call Chad Dixon @ LongRifles, Inc. He can make even a RH inletted stock go southpaw, very cool process & the only smith I use right now.

BTW- Welcome to the frusterating world of being a Shouth paw!

Thanks D.ID, I gave up on Idaho getting with the program on the reticles, and the year I stop checking they change it. Im very happy with that because I really like the PST.

Re: 338 RUM... What would YOU do?

Just and FYI. Idaho does allow illuminated reticles. See the section I copied from the F&G Site. I also attached a copy of the regs.

In any hunt, including any-weapon seasons, it is unlawful to
pursue or kill big game animals:
By any means other than approved firearms,
muzzleloaders and archery methods.
With any electronic device attached to, or incorporated
on, the firearm or scope; Except scopes containing
battery powered or tritium lighted reticles are allowed.

With any firearm that, in combination with a scope, sling
and/or any attachments, weighs more than 16 pounds.
With any fully automatic firearm.
With any shotgun using shot smaller than #00 buck.
With any rimfire rifle, rimfire handgun, or muzzleloading
