Actually my Rem 760 carries 7600 stocks. It has a slight edge in accuracy over the Savage 99 but not by much. Both are plenty good and 1" groups at 100 yds all day long with a good rest. I have a 300 and 250-3000 savage and both shoot just about the same. You know the 99's are one of my favorite all time rifles they just work well and are fun to hunt with.
I am getting a Remington 7600. Anyone have one that can let me know if there any flaws or things they don't like about it?
I got mine a few years ago in .270. Just had to have a pump rifle which is unique. The gun did not fit me well. I was struggling to reach the crappy trigger so I cut back the stock 1" and added a good Sims recoil pad. I also modified the trigger to 3.5# as it was almost 8#. Shooting Nosler 130 ballistic tips I can shoot 1" groups at 100 yards with a 3x9 scope. I seen value in the gun so I elected to mod it. It's a favored rifle in Northern New England area especially in 30-06. There are more accurate guns however it is a fine hunting rifle full of heritage.
I will never sell off my 760 30-06 it is plenty accurate, carries a Redfield Widefield 3x9x40, great to shoot for me having grown up with pump shotguns for ducks and geese and it was my first rifle purchase back in 1974 I think. Memory seems to fade over the years. I like the 7600 stocks better than the 760 heavy ones, just looks sleeker. Remington sent me a nice matching set after I fell and broke the origional butt stock. I have a nice 760 forearm if anyone is in need of one, just cover shipping plus $5.00.
well if you cycle the action how it meant to be done 'like you mean it.' and then put the safety on there will be no problem. when you fire if its an animal I think the actions noise will be the least of its worries.
