a few of my hunting buddies use them. they love them.
My pop has killed 16 deer and 2 bear with one and will not hunt with anything else. Its fast and accurate enough.
I have one in .30-06. As accurate as any bolt action rifle. It has a plastic butt plate and kicks like a mule. I need to install a rubber butt plate.
10,000+ guys in Pennsylvania can't be all wrong!
If you plan to shoot only factory ammo, I wouldn't give it a second thought.
Brother-in-law has a 760, not that much difference between that and the 7600, I don't think, in .270. I was impressed with how accurate it was but it kicks something fierce.
My son has one in 30-06,(synthetic). Has used it for the past 10 years. He weighs 140# and has no recoil problems. Good accuracy,feeds well,and he doesn't worry about scratches from rough useage. I tried to give him one of my more expensive bolt actions and he would rather hunt with his 7600. He has taken at least 10 deer with it and none got away. My only complaint is that they are harder to clean than a bolt action,but a bore snake helps a lot.
I reload for this gun also and have no problems. I stay within pressures of factory loads. I have a load that duplicates the Remington 150 grn. bullet loads (core-lok). That way he will have no ammo problems and can purchase it most anywhere
Oops, I didn't notice that this question was asked by hunterkid94 just a couple of weeks ago and was very well answered. Thank you for your patience and for taking the time to respond.

Q: Any reviews on the Remington Model 7600 pump? Just got one in 280 cal. and cant wait to shoot it. What grain/brand will be the most accurate for 280? Whats the max range on this gun? etc specs please. Or a link to a site with these specs?
My son has a Rem 7600 in .35 Whelen. It is a tack driver with 250 grain bullets. A little stiff on the recoil for me, but he handles it well. Mostly used for bears and elk in timber so far.
I'm not thrilled with the pumps and autoloaders mainly due to the shotgun stock design and noisy to load and unload. But, they are usually good shooters with factory ammo.
Like Clay said, I would be very cautious handloading for a 750, 7400, 7600 or ealier 742, 760, etc. Even though I handload, I would stick to factory ammo unless I was doing a whole lot of shooting. I certainly would not shoot someone else's hanloads in either rifle.
I had a 7600 in 243W, its not made for 243 only for 270 or 06
it deformes the bullit tip, even Core-lokt. SOLD!
I have 2 7600's. a 243 & a 270. I love both they shoot very well and are also comfortable to shoot. these guns are certainly a top recommendation with me.
