i put remington model 6 wood on it, makes shooting a scope a little easier, for me anyway. the second picture is a target shot with my 7600, left target is 180gr factory and the target on the right is my reload of 165 nosler BT with 55grs imr 4350. you can see what load my rifle likes. eastbank.

There are lot of used 760s and 7600s at the gunshows in the Shenandoah Valley. Nobody really wants them. They just sit there.

Most people here use bolt guns, even in the heavy woods. I like the way they "rack" though, and much prefer them to any lever. Haven't bought one, but thinking about it.

I've had my new 30/06 for 45 years. I took it for repair to the Olean factory for a broken slide rail after about 10 years. I actually caused the problem by using wd-40 and gummed up the action causing excessive wear. It's my go-to deer rifle.

I have a few of both and can say they both work very well. I avoid anything Remington that was made after 2000 because I think that is around when the downfall began. If I had to pick 1 gun for the rest of my life it would be a no brainer. I would be very happy with my 35whelen 7600 carbine. I carried it hunting rabbits last week with 158gn cast bullets loaded at about 1100fps and have killed my share of Adirondack bucks with it as well.
