I have the Rem 7600 and the 700. The 7600 is a very different animal. If you don't need pump or semi auto, stick with bolt action.
A bolt handle breaking off was the only problem? Where can I buy one?
Currently have an old Walker trigger 700BDL in '06 and very pleased with it. Prefer it to the pump.
closer to half that, actually https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=remington+7600
Rebarreling a 7600 is easy. Much easier than a 700. Pop the old one off, put the new one in (no threading into receiver) , check headspace. ressemble rifle and test fire. Barrels are not easy to find, but not impossible.
Where are you finding these barrels? My 760 needs one. Thanks.
Been there and done that. Originally a .223 bolt which I opened up for 6 PPC. One of these days I need to call PTG and see about getting a new bolt, then head spacing the rifle and getting it going again.
As to the original post? Given the options I would be looking for an older Remington 700 BDL, I have built up a few and just like the 700 BDL. I also liked the old 760 models and still have a 7400 which is amusing as I no longer hunt.
I get what you're saying, but I've always kind of wished that my Model 760, also chambered in 30-06 and the dispatcher of more than one whitetail, was chambered in .35 Whelen...
