Where can I find a 375 RUM?

I'd like to buy a 375 RUM in left hand. While the 375 H&H is much more popular, I've got a nice 300 RUM and a 338 RUM and would like to stay with the same case.
What I would really like is a Rem 700 LSS (LH) but I don't have high expectations of finding one.

Here's a RH 375 RUM: Gun Library: Remington 700 African Plains Rifle, .375 Ultra Mag : Cabela's

Bud's Guns shows the XCR for a lot less, but they are showing out of stock. They might be able to get one for you, though.

You probably missed it but I need a "left hand" action.

No, I didn't miss it. That's why I pointed out that the Cabela's rifle was RH. .375 RUM's are difficult enough to find, let alone one in LH. If you plan to really hold out for a LH action, you might as well just have a custom built. Otherwise, good luck finding your unicorn!

Here is a .300 RUM 700 LSS LH for a reasonable price:


Left Handed Remington LSS 300 Ultra Mag

A simple re-barrel would get you to the .375 RUM that you are after. I would say that you could get there from here for $1500 or less, including price of the rifle.

Hey there fellow south paw, as you can attest the LH side of the game just flat out stinks sometimes .

I'd honestly say, buy a donor & build one, save the heart ache & frustration.

Re: Where can I find a 375 RUM?

I was able to find a NIB LH Ruger Alaskan in 375 Ruger. The price was right so I grabbed it. Oddly enough it appears to be a non-cataloged version with a grey laminated stock which looks very similar to my LSS rifles. According to an internet article I located, the grey laminated version was produced in very limited numbers before production was halted.

New brass was much easier to locate than I expected and dies were readily available too.

The 375 Ruger kicks like a mule so maybe the 375 RUM wasn't the best idea to begin with.
