Nice rig although it would be a disservice to you if I didn't mention the shifter is on the wrong side. 🤣
DISAGREE with,.. THIS ^^^
I'm thinking the "Shifter" is EXACTLY,.. where it, belongs !,.. LOL !
The .270 WSM Hits above, it's "Pay Grade" with, the Right Bullet and Powders!
My 140 Berger Load, starting at 3,185 FPS is still going, OVER, 2,000 FPS at,.. 800 Yards !

After watching my good left handed friend jack a shell in for a follow up shot with a right handed rifle faster than anything I’ve ever seen, I’m not so sure. Keeps his hand on the bolt while he shoots. It’s crazy to witness

Back in the "Good Ole Days" of, 16 to 27 y/o,.. I could "Roll over" a Righty and Jack one in, my Springfield, .30-06,.. pretty, FAST !
Was POORish then, and Bought, a " Lefty" Weatherby MK V, in .270 Wby at 28 y/o and NEVER,.. Looked back !
Have owned, ALL Left Handed Rifles since,.. 3-4 Rem 700's, 2 - Weatherby MK V's, 3- Tikka's and they are NOW, My Favorites !
Shot 2 Elk with, the .270 WSM Tikka ! The Weatherby's were "Slick" actions, but, kinda, Heavy, compared to my 7.5 Pound Tikka's !
I HAD a Custom, MK V in .338 Win Mag ( Douglas Prem Bbl. ) that, would Cloverleaf 3, 210 Partitions every Year and would "Roll" an Elk,..
BUT was not,.. "Fun" to Practice with,..
I shoot, the .270 WSM,.. way, WAY,. Better !

The 140's going at, 3,150 to 3,200 FPS, aren't too "bad" in, the Recoil dept !
The Tikka "Jumps" up a Bit when, "working up" loads off, the Bench ! IN Field Positions / Hunting,.. NO, Problem !
Was shooting, a 7 Rem Mag with, 154's / 160's before, the WSM
Those 2 Cart's, ARE at, my Maximum, "Enjoyable",.. recoil Level !

The 140’s seem to be the sweet spot. I’d be curious to know what most of the factories use for test fire. Bet it’s right in there close

I bet those light tikkas in 270 wsm are a sweet setup. My brothers is a 300wsm and it’s a little too much gun for the weight in my eyes (and shoulder)
I just got a roughtech Tikka which has just a touch more beef in the barrel. That along with a limbsaver makes a 270wsm tikka a very nice rifle to shoot. My dad preferred shooting it to his 7mm-08 tikka with the factory "pad".

Had to look that up. Bet that is a dandy. My brothers on his 3rd, had a vanguard, a savage, and now the browning. All of them were nail drivers but he’s pretty fond of his little browning. Not sure how much it weighs but the shorter barrel knocks the velocity down which in turn knocks the recoil down . He’s killed a couple bucks with it and it does what it needs to do.
