I'm in the market for a varmint gun, preferably a .243. Sort of depressed now. I was looking for a good bolt action gun. In the five companies I've looked at, none of them make a left handed bolt action varmint gun. Left handed versions aren't made until you get into the bigger calibers (.270 and higher). So I'm curious what other lefthanders are doing out there. Are you going to a lever action? If so, have you had a problem with hot brass being ejected near your face?
