    Hi fellow hunters.
    This question comes from the other side of the atlantic (try making such a long shot)
    Id like to buy a LR rifle, and I am looking towards Weatherbys line of guns since I am left handed shooter. I like their new Treat Response rifle, not sure if it comes in left hand though, and also the accumark in 30-378.
    My question is, what other manufacturers make a standard left hand rifle in a LR caliber? Id like to buy the gun factory made.
    Thanks! Emil, Sweden. [​IMG]

    Hello Oneshot

    I would look at the Remington Sendaro in the 300 Ultra mag. It's right there with the 30/378 as far as ballistics go and it is on a factory Remington Mag action.

    I'm not sure but, I think they make a left hand model.

    Check the website for Remington Arms.

    Remington doesn't make the Sendero left-handed.

    Here are your left-hand Remington options with heavier barrels:

    Remington 700 VS
    Remington 40X

    Savage makes Savage their 10, 110, 12, 112 series varmint and law enforcement rifles in LH with varmint weight barrels.

    I ended up building a custom Rem700 LH 30-06 and buying a Rem 700 VS LH in .308

    Good Luck! MM

    You may want to check out Ed Brown and H.S. Precision. Both are now available LH.
    Good Luck

    Oneshot, I have a Mark V Accumark that is very accurate. They come with a 26" Krieger barrel.

    Its a 300 Weatherby, OneShot. Mounted a Leupold 3.5-10X40mm M1 LR. Not quite powerful enough for 1000 yards, I think, but very nice! littletoes.

    No I havent seen it Littletoes!
    Is it pretty?
    I am thinking of buying a Leupold scope long range scope. Something like 6,5-20 X 50.
    As for myself I am still looking for that good left hand rifle in a long range caliber....
    Thanks for all the great replies I have gotten. Just havent found THE ONE rifle yet.

    Hey OneShot, think I would e-mail Darryl Cassel about a custom rig. If you are truly serious about 1000 yards and beyond, I don't think you would be satisfied with what rifle manufactures out there have to offer. The Weatherby is going to cost you at least 1200 bucks, and don't get me wrong-I love mine! but i have always wanted a rifle with at least a 29 inch barrel. The 30-378 and the 338-378 are awsome rounds, but there full potential can't be had out of a 26" barrel. I don't know much about the 338 Lapua, but I hear it was made to reach the big Weatherby velocities without the belt. I understand reaching gunsmiths in your area that can do this work may be hard to find, but am shure Darryl can hook you up. littletoes.
