Default Remington 7600?

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 have a 760 rem that due to a fall I ended up installing 7600 stocks on it. It is a great accurate rifle. It was my first rifle purchase back in 1973. It has a Redfield 3x9x40 widefield scope on it. Perfect deer getting machine!

Default Just don't work that action softly...

One of my friend's Dad missed the Huge Buck of his life using his Remington 760 in 270. The story goes that they were out in the woods early that morning and he had eased a round into the chamber. At the shot he got a click instead of a bang. There was a round in the chamber but no primer strike on the round. The bolt had not rotated quite far enough to allow the rifle to fire. Todd said after that when his Dad chambered a round you could hear it quite a ways off. They are a great choice if you also use a pump action shotgun. I have noticed that some of the Remington 7600s have a noisy rattle in the forearm that might drive you crazy.

yup you want to chamber a round solidly which does make some noise but I've never had any issues with mine except dragging bucks. Never have shot a doe with that rifle?????

Default Rem 7600 Carbine w/18.5 inch in 30-06

I personally have wanted a wood stocked carbine for a long time. They don't show it in the current list of offerings now from the factory. I always wondered why they don't put sling swivels on the pump actions the 7400 autos also didn't have them. The new model 750 has them but they haven't moved this new style stock to the pump actions yet. Obviously the forearm would need to be modified to work the pump action.

30-06. I have always shot 150 gr bullets through it, however, from what I'm reading 165 gr may actually give better performance and something I will consider. This rifle is pretty much in retirement as I have enjoyed the Savage 99's lately. The next one to try is a pre 64 Win 88 in 308 which just got a Redfield 3x9x40 on it tonight. If the idea of a pump rifle meets your needs the Remington 760, 7600 are really well built. I don't know anything about the new models or what they are numbered by.

Default Accuracy

Hunting man - would you say there is much difference in accurate between your rem 7600 and savage model 99?
