I am tossing the idea of buying a new rifle. I am left handed so finding a rifle in itself is a challenge on its own. I want a stainless/synthetic combo. I have narrowed it down pretty much to the Savage 16/116 weather warrior LH model.

I plan to put a tactical scope in it...still a learning curve there. I would really like some suggestions on the caliber though and your thoughts on the rifle too.

i would like to get something different...like a 6.5-.284 norma or a .270 WSM. I will hunt antelope and deer with this rifle and sheep some day...
