Winchester will start making left hand rifles the same time as others make left hand screwdrivers and striped paint. The good thing is the new savage straight pull can be either left or

I bought one of the first run of them when they were push feeders. Milled out the bottom of the bolt face so the round could slip up under the extractor rather than popping up in front of it.
I was unaware that the later issues push fed happily.
Thought I had something unique.
Thank you for explaining that. I was honestly thinking I was nuts lol

I wouldn't say push feed happily. The bolt close is stiffer, but the extractor will jump over the case head. It's like dropping a round in a Glock barrel, and dropping the slide on it. It will work just fine, but I'd say it's not the best for constant use. When I do load work, all my rifles are Rugers, 264, 7mm, 300, 338, and 375, and I just slide the round partly into the chamber, and close the bolt.

soon as I get dies, bullets, brass, and glass. ;)

I'm really wanting to shoot A Frame 160s out of it, but no data in their manual for AI, and Swift support just says "work up cautiously from the max 280 Rem load." So I will be careful.

For that matter, Geoff at Woodleigh said the same thing Swift did.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
