Rifle Suggestions for a lefty
I am looking at building a long range rifle (500-600yds mostly) I have decided on a VX-3 6.5-20 with M1 turrets but I am still at a loss for a gun. I would prefer to stay below $800 on the gun. The problem is I want a rifle in 300wsm and would like a Remington 700 but it doesn't seem to exist and I don't want to spend alot of money on a custom rig or Remington's Custom shop. So any suggestions between Browning, TIkka, or Savage or any other ideas?
I would like to eventually bed the stock, free float the barrel, lap the lugs, do trigger work and possibly recrown the muzzle.
The main reason for me to get a .30 caliber is because of the bullet choices since we handload and have alot of .30 bullets. Another option I suppose would be the 300 RUM. Whats the difference in recoil between that and the 300wsm. I would like to keep the gun around 9lbs.
