Hi Lepcur, the 338 fed was a serious contender at one stage, however finding one in Africa turned out almost impossible, don't recall any imported so far to the south where I stay. And left hand stainless? ...boy, let me not go there...
when this stainless Alaskan lefthand m77 ruger came along with the 375R bolt face, I jumped at it ... the boltface suited the 338WM and I did not want to incur further costs on customizing. This rifle is going to OZ, and it will have to do with 95% of the hunting there..
