Not cheap, but owners say they are nice rifles.

Savage makes left handed versions of their models 10 and 12, for less than the Remington

A search on this site will yeild a lot of info from owners of both.

Or you can look at the Remington 700 SPS Varmit for around $600, mine has been great, just you might want to buy a different stock. :)

For 204 or 223 the AR platform is my choice. I wouldn't own a bolt rifle in those calibers unless someone wants to give me one.

thanks but i live in australia and cannot have a semi-auto so i guess i am limited to boltaction, by the way it will be used for a general purpose gun with some long shots taken

Have you considered a .22-250, .243Win., or better yet a .260 Rem/6.5 Swede. All have a light recoil impulse and are all better for long range than the .223 or .204. For moderate range varmint destruction the .17Rem is a appealing round, but I have no experience with one. :)

The .17Rem should be virtually recoiless, and the others have very little, but more than a .223/.204. I would get a Winchester 1885 Low Wall in .223...similar to a good ole Quigley Rifle in a slightly girlier caliber :neener: ...or a Browning A-Bolt Hunter or Medallion. Both are only offered in .223Rem. :)

how much cleaning is needed for a 17 rem compared to a 223 rem or 204 ruger

No experience with it, but should be no different than any other rifle that shoots jacketed bullets. Of course a .17cal cleaning rod/jags are a prerequisite. What I can tell you is that it shoots like a laser for short-moderate range.
