Remington left hand short action.

Can anyone tell me if Remington makes a left hand short action that will accomodate the 300wsm. Trying to set my lefty son in law up in a 300wsm and am not opposed to building one but I am not sure if they have an action that will work. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

They will, a Wyatt box will get you to a 3" OAL.

I've built a couple on long action Savages. Works great, especially on long bullets seated to the lands.

Thanks. Next question. Do the barrels on a left hand thread the opposite direction or the same direction as the right handers?

Same threads. Only difference is the bolt.

Re: Remington left hand short action.

I would consider going with a semi-custom action rather than a remmy that needs to be trued. It will cost a little more, but have the features you are looking for and probably have greater resale (if that day ever comes). Take into consideration the purchase and trueing of the factory action, add sako or m16 extractor etc, and the cost is nominal.

Take a look a Stiller Predator available in left hand and left port.

Just my two cents from experience.

Thanks for the input so far. It really has me looking at several different options at this point.

You can get the Stiller in stainless as well. Remington never made a stainless left hand short action.

I'd still vote for the long action Savage.
