Lefty: what stainless 308 bolt action rifle?

Hi all,

It's been a while since posting my last thread, having located to Australia and having to settle in. My LH stainless custom Ruger 338WM on a 375 Alaskan platform has finally arrived from the US and should be licensed within the next few weeks to be my all purpose hunter.

Need some advice from all you good people out there with regards to a left hand stainless 308 cal rifle. This will be for subsonic vermin application, but want it with a tactical flavour, not too heavy with 18-20" barrel. I have looked at Tikka light, Ruger Scout and the SSG 69 P4 will almost make me forsake the stainless LH option. Have in mind to custom a target rife in left stainless if ever there is such a thing...

Any advice please .... custom or standard production options. If you had one custom made, please post a pic.

    I think Browning makes the X-Bolt/A-Bolt in left hand action. I'd check them out, a lot to like.

    The Tikka Varmint is a great looking rifle with that tactical feel.
