    I'm in the market for a new rifle and can't find a left handed 300 mag at any store by me nor can they order me one so I'm thinking get a single shot what are some good brands that won't brake the bank this will be my first single shot rifle I'd like to keep made in the USA but am on a budget spend 800 I do have some time to save some more but would like to snag one up before the season starts.

    Thompson Center Encore comes to mind.

    Ruger model 1, but price of that one is higher than TC.

    I don't know if Handi Rifles are available in 330 win mag. Sweet little guns in 243, 270, 280, 308 and 30:06 plus others.

    Rossi might have one. I have one of their little single 20ga and its a great little gun. Be prepared for some recoil with a 300win in there

    I know you want a 300mag but what will you be hunting? A different caliber might be easier to find, and do the job just as well.

    Must be Bigfoot. I shot a large 180lbs doe, 110 yards with a 300 win mag.... Took her off her feet. Badass round for sure.

    Is it that hard to find left handed models? I am left handed but I have always bought right hand rifles.

    I've never had any problems finding LH rifle's.But you can shoot a RH just the same,I have done it my entire life.
    I had a Ruger #1 300WM for a long time,they are great guns.That said,the #1's either shoot good,or they shoot bad.But they will all shoot minute of deer or elk.

    Gunbroker has several LH rifles in 300WM and also 300 RUM,300 WSM if you are set on a 300.
    A 30/06 or 7MM Mag will suit your needs also,and there are plenty LH rifles in those calibers for sale on Gunbroker also.
    If your local gun shop won't order you a rifle,I'd find another gun shop to deal with.
    Savage,Remington,Tikka,Browning,Ruger all manufacture LH rifles,and their distributers usually have them in stock,so getting one to a dealer shouldn't be a problem.
    Oh,CZ-USA also makes lefties!
