i'm a proud owner of this fine firearm in 30-06.

just wondering if anyone else enjoys this weapon that lends itself to self-defense as well as hunting and does not compromise at either.

would very much like to hear/see about yours.

I have the older model 760 in .270 that belonged to my Dad with an old Bushnell Scopechief 2x-8x on it. He gave it many years of use and it fed the family a lot of times when I was growing up. It still works as well as the day it left the Remington factory although it's not as pretty anymore, 40 some odd years of hunting in the Arkansas brush have left some scars but I still hunt with it a couple of times a year and it has never failed me. Fine rifles in my opinion.

Thumbs up

Great rifles! I used to own one chambered in .300 Savage, and a 7400 chambered in .308. The .308 7400 wouldn't feed mil-surp 7.62x51 ammo very well due to having a .308 chamber.

Just avoid the cheap Ram-Line 10rd extended magazines because they frequently malfunction.


They'd work well for SD in a pinch, but wouldn't be my first choice.
I'd like to have a newer one chambered in .35 Whelen or .30-06

yep, what you guys says is true ... the 30-06 probably lends its self to bear self defense in the woods.

but the 7600 is not popular here in BC, more so back east.

.35 Whelen caliber would be better suited for big, angry bears▬it's a .30-06 necked-up to .35 cal

I've got a 760 in 30-06......it's awesome for the piggies!

Faster than a bolt and lots of punch for laying out a pig!

Yes, I own a 7600. So did my dad, so does my brother ( he has 2 now, his own and Dads). Years ago all you saw in our hunting party was either a 760 or a leveraction 30-30. Remington even went so far as to call it the Pennsylvania Pump in its adds.

I have a .30-06 caliber 760 from 1977. It is a tack driver with my handloads. Never a failure to feed, no issues at all. Excellent deer hunting rifle.

I've got the same gun. .30-06 too. Love it. Ten guys in our hunt camp and 8 have 7600's. Beautiful guns. Two of my cousins, four of my uncles, both grandfathers and my dad also have one. One of the favourites here in Ontario.

We all have Winchester .30-30 lever actions too. Another winner.

I have an old 740 in 30.06 from the 1950s, it is still my go to deer and hog rifle. It is not a tack driver but it still gets the job done, I have owned it since about 1985.

Never saw this thread before.

Bought my 7600/30-06 in 89 and it still is the pinnacle of my firearms. Beautiful gun and I've always loved it.

They are very fine rifles and used ones can be had rather inexpensive enough also.

Definitely one of my favorite guns. Mine is chambered in 308 to keep the cost of shooting down. I've never understood why pump action rifles didn't catch on. If you think about it, its a far simpler mechanism to work than bolts. Shotguns are all still pump for a reason.

I also like that you can get 10 round magazines for them. This is an awesome, very accurate gun that MANY people over look.
