I love the idea of building up a rifle, whether its a Rem700, or even a Savage. But we are 5 months away from our hunting seasons across the west. Be sure you have a rig now, to get practice, work up loads, and get in the country to scout. Always keep your eyes and ears open for the deals on rifles when they come up. Left hand rifles
don't come up for sale very often. When they do, be ready to jump. Builds take a lot of time and thought, after you have the action. Gunsmiths take 4-8 months or longer. It could take a while to get a barrel to install your self. The Savage is the easiest left hand rifle
to pick up quik. They are mud fence ugly, but are great hunting tools out of the box. And they cost less than most other rifles available. If you are hunting this year, be sure you have shooter now.
