Yes, but you realise that in the standing position your sights will drop from the weight of the rifle, not that you can't counter this. However standard practice is that its the hand thats on the trigger that should pull the bolt, not only for safety reason but its also a lot more fluid. I finally got my first left hand bolt action in real steel, until not all my bolt actions have been right handed, and let me tell you, the difference is amazing.
