Well, I'm right handed, just shoot left handed and have been with bolt guns since I got my Remington M512X bolt gun (still have) for my 9th birthday. I just hold it up a bit with my left hand on the grip while I work the bolt with my right hand. Works for me. Left hand guns are limited and I don't believe my favorite centerfire hunting rifle was ever offered in a lefty, my stainless Remington M7. That gun is SO handy and so versatile for hunting big and medium game, I just love it and don't care which side the bolt is on. Heck, in the box blind or on a tripod stand I'm shooting off a rest and don't even have to elevate the gun to work the bolt. If I were all that worried about it, I'd have gone for a BLR in .308, ambidextrous ya know. My bud's is a danged accurate rifle, too, and pretty to look at.
