    I handled one,and the scope comes up naturally to the left eye,yet all is to be operated with right shoulder-right hand.
    If you think having an all around gun(moose at some ranges,not just a good bush gun)you may be better off going that way.

    let us know................

    Caliber is your choice, i prefer 30-06 because of the available choices of bullet size and price for ammo is reasonable.

    [COLOR=#000000]"fast action and usually multiple shots on running deer," You mean you spray and pray? Fortunately you hunt several hundred miles away from where I do.

    I would recommend you trade in the right handed bolt and get a lever action. A Browning BLR in .308 would serve you well. They can be bought used @ $500-600 easily. Your bolt would cover most of that.

    I am left eye dominant but right handed. I shoot left handed and I prefer using right handed bolt guns. Mind you that is more for target shooting and not hunting. I bought a Browning blr in 308 for a hunting rifle. Only down side is brass ejecting across your line of site but that never bothered me. You can also look for a pump action rifle. Not common but would be similar to a lever. My in laws use older remington pump rifles in 270.

    Savage & Browning both make left-handed bolts. Depending who your local dealer is, these may be basically impossible to get. But I always see LH rifles in stock at Lake Huron Rod &Gun.

    Remind me to never invite you to a driven game hunt. How soon your option changes, you complement the guy rolling running boar, but flame anyone that can roll running deer.

    If he's got a safe back stop why the problem.

    Not really, too many let that comment pass, the first rule of hunting safety is control your muzzle, and be sure before you shoot. A big part of that is knowing what backstop you have behind what your shooting at. You don't really have time to make any evaluation of your back stop, generally beyond your first shot if you are shooting at deer running broadside. It can cover a lot of ground, firing recklessly at it could endanger other hunters. That especially true if you are hunting on public land. Meanwhile on private property there is no accounting for the many who choose to ignore property lines.

    I guess if all you hunt are deer standing with their face stuck in a bait pile, you wouldn’t know about hitting running deer ... but of course this is off topic !!

    Snowwalker-I belie my post about the Gun Stock has nothing to do with this debate about shooting at running deer..........Just saying since it showed up as to be quoted
