Another factor for lefties -- the lever is more ambidextrous. Most bolts are righties and if the rifle has a scope it is almost impossible to chamber a round by reaching over the scope. It results in the shooter getting out of position.\
All other comments are on target.
Bolt = long range, lever for shorter faster work.

All persons present in uniform should render the military salute. Members of the armed forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute. All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.
