My 10 year old son was taking his hunter education course this weekend and he noticed that they did not cover pump action rifles, only bolt, semi, falling block, and lever. And his dad(me) generally hunts with a 760. As far as I know Remington was the only major manufacturer that produced pump action rifles for any length of time with the 14/141 thru the 760/7600 and a couple of others in there. I personally think the 760 was the high point and I own three- 30-06 which I use every year, a .257 Roberts and a .270 which my in law uses every year. But that's it as far as I know. My question is why and was my answer correct. I told him: that the action would not support magnum cartridges. I am assuming this is true since the 760 was never produced in a magnum round You lose your line of sight when working the action. I am left handed so that's an issue with RH bolts too. I also think that's an issue with lever actions as well for most shooters. And the tendency to copy military firearms. The military never adopted a pump rifle. Was I right? I personally love the 760 and think it is superior, for me, than any other rifle that chambers traditional deer rifle type cartridges. I almost exclusively shoot off handed and love it(I also hunt with a Ruger No1 in .257 Robert because of how well it is balanced for offhanded shooting. But that's for a different thread.) Thanks and appreciate the responses.
