    Sure, in addition to the 7600 have shot deer with a Marlin 444SS, Weatherby Mark V 300 mag, Savage 99 300 Savage, Mauser 98 257 Roberts and 03 Springfield 30/06.

    Shot a lot more with shotguns because that is what is legal in my home state, Ithaca Deerslayer 12 gauge smoothbore, Ithaca Deerslayer III 20 gauge, Winchester 1300 12 gauge, H & R single shots in 12 and 20 gauge, Ithaca Deerslayer II, Browning Auto 5, L.C. Smith 12 gauge sxs, Remington 870 20 gauge, Remington 1100.

    Gun dates from 1951 and I've been using it exclusively since 1984 when I inherited it from my Grandfather.

    Now a days I hunt from a stand 95% of the time. It's more effective ehere I hunt in Ct. When I hunted in Maine I still hunted and tracked more. I hunted mostly with a Ruger 77 ultralight 308.

    My choice is a 760 in '06, rifle or carbine. Had both, carbine swings easier. 2nd choice 7600 in '06, tad bit heavier than the 760 so for me it's number 2 choice.

    My scoped 336 weights a full pound less than my scoped 7600 carbine and fits me far better. My 7600 weights the same as my Sako which also fits me far better and is balanced For me, the 336 is handier, lighter, and fits better. YMMV.


    I like the looks of the 7600 and doubt that there is anyone who has tried to like the 7600 more than me. The last three I bought have been steaming piles of crap and Remington should be ashamed of them (my opinion). Heck the guy at Remington's customer service told me point blank that they are not the 7600s of old. I doubt he still works there. I have learned my lesson, at least with newer models.
    I've already told you more than I know.

    Thanks. I like how the 760 and older 7600 handle also. Seems that they all do fit differently.

    I'm going to have to try a Marlin 336 sc to see how it handles. Love the look of that rifle.

    I'll post what I think of my brand new 7600 carbine (non-engraved) as compared to the older version. Hope it's a shooter.

    Got my first deer this year with my Marlin 336ss in 30-30, older Pentax scope. It functioned perfectly and I couldn't have been more happy with it. It was my first rifle, bought it new in the early 2000s with my Dad, so it's got sentimental value as well. Only drawback is I can't use it for deer in my home state (MA) due to a 1900s laws banning rifle hunting for deer. Most of my hunting is with a Mossberg 535 with a rifled barrel and scope. If I had my choice it would be the 336.
