Rem 7600

I am thinking about picking a gun to do drives with. Currently I am thinking about the rem 7600. What are your thoughts? Also, what scope would you recommend?

Re: Rem 7600

real good choice. for a very handy gun, go with the carbine model.

Re: Rem 7600

I own a 7600 Syn/Matte 30/06 Carbine. Mine sits under a Leupold Vari X III 1.75 X 6 power. Very handy in the woods. I find myself carrying it more and more even though I have a number of other more expensive rifles to choose from.I can't think of a better rifle for close range Deer and Bear hunting.

Re: Rem 7600

7600 would work nicely I have a 760 its a nice gun. Look at the 4-12 x 40mm redfield scopes. they have 3-9x models as well but the 4-12x has 4.9" of eye relief which you cant beat and at $219 the price isnt bad either.

Re: Rem 7600

Great rifle! They are very accurate as well. I have a Rem 760 in 30-06 that my father has been using. It has a Leupold VXII 3-9x40 on it. You will like the 7600. What cal are you looking at? One in .270win, 7mm-08 or 30-06 would be nice!

Re: Rem 7600

I was thinking either the 270 or 30.06. Leaning towards 30 06. Is anyone using red dot scopes on them. hmm Red dot scopes even legal? A lot of time s in the thick stuff I hunt, I don;t really need much more than x2.

That's why I put a 1.75 x 6 power Leupold on my Carbine. On 1.75X it's GREAT for close and fast shots.

Hard to beat a 7600 in either .270 or .30-06!

Re: Rem 7600

From my experience stay away from red dot scopes the batteries will die when you need it most. Had it happen to me with an xbow before I started using a compound. Use a low power scope 2-7 with 4+ inches of eye relief that way when you pull the gun up its there no messing around to get a good sight picture.

I've had scopes that have had short eye relief I suffered for years. My last scope bought has 4.9 inches of eye relief on 4 power and 3.7 inches at 12 power. It makes getting a good consistent sight picture quick and easy. No more messing around to get it right.

If you are worried about finding the critter in the scope try picking up the gun and looking through the scope with both eyes open like with a shotgun you should be pretty close to on target.
