I was at the local gun shop yesterday and asked if any of the major gun makers sold a left handed 300 WM rifle with a heavy or medium barrel for target and some long range shooting. He said that no one did. The only kind they made was in the regular light hunting barrel.

Can any of you confirm this for me or is there some one out there that does make a left handed 300 WM heavy barrel rifle.

Thanks Look forward to what you guys have to say.

well REBARREL one of them......
 
I assume you're talking about a 300 Winchester Mag and NOT a Weatherby Mag......Heck, buy a left handed 30/06 and rebarrel it in a heavy barrel 300 Winchester...and then have a gunsmith work over the extractor and the magazine a little bit......I would stay with the Mauser/ Winchester type actions, though....

I thought initially that Tikka made a heavy barreled lefty, but I can't find it on line.
Probably talking custom.

   Try ER Shaw (412)221-3636. My understanding is that they're building their own rifle using Savage actions,which are of course offered in LH.  Prices are suppose to be VERY reasonable.  Maybe give them a call and see what configurations they're offering.
 
til later

a good overview of what's available (LH 300wm) can be found at gunbroker.com
I have always like the looks of the Rem Sendaro--my bro-in-law has the 300RUM with a Meopta R1--sweet setup, but built for sitting in the blind!

Unfortunately, I am left handed and they aren't making it.  I am reminded of the other post with the rem picture of the left handed shooter shooting a RH rifle (on the rem left handed section). . .
