    You could get a Remington 700 SPS Tactical in .308. Those do have a 20" barrel, and will be an awesome rifle. Not to mention, the factory Remington 700 trigger is a lot better than most people think, and VERY adjustable if you know how to do it safely.

    They are using a new trigger called an X-Mark Pro, no more potential problems.

    LTR.

    Roommate has the PSS, and the 26" barrel is just too much.

    I like the savage. I'm looking at a 10FPL, myself. But Savage doesn't do detachable box mags in their leftys :wtc:

    Yea as I was searching for pics for the thread I ran across the SPS. That may be the way I go.

    I`m pretty much a Savage sac rider but I have my fair share of Remmys.


    I was doing some reading on the SPS trigger. Some are saying that it is hard to adjust and comes with some kind of glue over the adj screws. Reading that it is factory set at 3# which is a little heavy for me but I would have to shoot it to see how it feels.

    I shoot left handed but do not own a single left handed gun. I would be a fumbling fool trying to work a left handed bolt gun.

    That's what I thought but my first time shooting my Rem700 left hand this weekend it felt great.

    I feel that most right-handed firearms make sense to shoot lefty. For example: my glock. The mag release is easier to manipulate with the trigger or middle finger than the thumb. And it's definitely easier to actuate the slide-release with the trigger finger.

    Likewise, my rem870 is easily used lefty... The fore-grip is ambidextrious, and the safety is easily manipulated with my trigger finger.

    Indeed, my AR is the same way. My right hand can easily swap mags by gripping the mag between my palm and 4 fingers, with the thumb actuating the mag release. The safety can be manipulated with either the trigger finger, or thumb.


    But a bolt is hard to do lefty. with iron sights, or a tall scope mount mounted far forward, you can use your left hand, bringing your thumb over to lift the bolt and pull rearward. However, a rearward or low scope will prevent this. A lefty bolt is a much better fit.

    I had a hard time finding a .308 Rem700 SPS around here (deer season tends
    to kill stock) and wound up with a 10FP that I really really like so far.
