While it ain't a 7600, my 760 in .35 Rem is a keeper.

Actually would rather have a 760. The 7600 is too fancy to be tromping around as a hunting rifle and the 76 is too blah..

I have an old 1952 760 in .270, it was my grandfathers. I have hunted with it for many years. Every now and then I'll get the urge to buy a new hunting rifle, use it some but by the end of the season that 760 will be in my hands again.

I worked the summer of 1979 in order to earn enough to buy a 760. When I thought I had enough cash, my Dad took me to the gun store near Warrenton, VA. It was called Clark Brothers. They only had one available and it wasn't in the .270 I had wanted, so I got a 30/06. Hunted open sights that fall/winter with no kills. The next summer I bought a Bushnell scope and that winter, in the last hour of the last day shot a huge doe. Tracked her in the bloody snow and gutted her in the dark. My first deer.

It has taken probably thirty deer since then, with another huge doe the last time I went out, two years ago. Quartering away shot at 150 yards, slipped it just behind the first set of ribs and out the opposite shoulder. She sat right down and then flopped over, then got to her feet and ran twenty yards. A follow up shot would have been pointless as it was obvious she was struggling. They are hard to die you know.

I lost interest in hunting with it when I bought my Knight rifle. Black powder devil in .50 caliber. It will hit tennis balls at fifty yards offhand all day long. Smack a deer with it and the feet just come out from under them. I call it my blunder bluss. The 30/06 lets them run a ways. It goes through too fast. Of course a faster opening round might change all that. Been using Remington Cor-Loct.

The only bad thing about my rifle is that it is difficult to mount a sling. The accuracy is good enough for any 200 yard shot you want to take. Follow up shots are natural, fast and cycle unnoticed. You are loaded and back on target again very fast. The rifle is short and light and makes for a good bush rifle. Very easy to maneuver through stickers with it. The safety is a bit loud, but you learn how to deal with that.

After taking many many multiples with the rifle, I learned it will hit running deer quite easily.

I would venture to say a man with a 760 would just nudge out a man with a Winchester lever action rifle. That only because of the caliber availability. Certainly the deer don't seem to notice the difference.

We have that ad on our "wall of shame" at the camp in Pike Co. PA!

Maybe the pumps are better but I had a Remington 742 and 7400. That whole series was one of the biggest POS Remington ever foisted upon the American hunter.
