    I looked at Tikka T3 Lite Stainless and there is no mention of lefthanded? Not sure on Brownings...but, I'll check.

    Lots of left handed W70 in WSM calibers out there. I am in the process of building one up myself in 300 WSM. The short barreled action W70 weighs 5 ounces less than the standard action. I am tossing the wooden stock and replacing it with a 20 ounce McMillan Edge graphite stock.

    Yup, me too. About ready to toss the crap factory synthetic stock on my model 70 300 WSM and go with the McMillan Edge stock as well.

    Don't overlook Savage if you are also willing to trade stocks. When I want tough and reliable, that's who I think of. Excellent caliber selection for us lefties, and I've never found one that wasn't a sincere tack driver.

    AND Savage has one of the best "out of the box" triggers. They dont look like much, but they're shooters.

    I don't know what the actual weights are, but on the rack the T3's feel way light compared to most others.
