I'm a lefty and insterested in a 7mm-08--please don't laugh. Primary use is whitetail and would like to eventually be able to hand this down to my son so recoil is a consideration. Wish list is 22' stainless barrell, 1-9.5 twist, composite stock. Here is what I have found out: Savage - I shoot and enjoy several Savages and all is perfect with their Model 16 except twist is 1-11.5 (Model 16 and 11). I know this has been covered in various places and am not comfortable with this rate. Remington - Compact is available, hollow stock, short (20") barrell--have shot this gun, more recoil than I would prefer Ruger - Wood stock Browning - Wood stock, micro build probably too light. Tika - Quit importing. Any suggestions? Thanks!
