Don't buy the 7400. My 308 was a jamomatic. Never shot more than two rounds without jamming. Sold it for parts. Needs a special wrench to take the action out. Worse rifle I ever owned.

My 7400 is chambered in 270 winchester and it throws the brass out and slightly forward. My dad shoots it left handed regulaly with no issues. I have never had any jamming issues with mine at all. It's a good gun.

I had a Remington 750 in .308 and I shoot left handed. Never had any problems with this. Some ammo seemed more likely to cause jamming. Other wise good rifle.

I've listed mine for sale here on calguns. It's a real shooter and has never given me any function problems. Thanks for looking!

I have several friends who shot 742 rifles left handed with no trouble. Excellent rifles.
