    Our resident Grendel aficionado wrestled with the lefty 223 problem for quite some time - eventually thought screw it and got a Tikka. As usual it got some @Pommy treatment. Shoots okay from what I heard...
    @Doon - did you ever post pics of it? We're curious as there aren't many leftie bolts that have PPC/Grendel bolt face.

    Yeah I wanted leftie, large mags, to be able to load really long, and have it not weigh a tonne.

    Ruger American Ranch. Couldn't find a leftie and pmags are capped at 2.260".

    Howa Mini. 10rd mags with roughly a 2.320" limit. But rightie only.

    Rem 700. Found a varmint one. Too heavy. Also a Rustington.

    Mossberg MVP. Hard to come by. Pmags again. Also ew.

    So it pretty much boiled down to two options. Custom build - silly amounts of money and many months of waiting... or a Tikka with a few mods.

    So I have yet another T3 in the safe
