My kicks harder than an '06, but then I feed it pretty stout loads...Way more accurate than any 760/7600 I've ever had in 30/06.

I have to agree with Big Ken. Mine is the hardest kicker in the stable, and that includes my 45-70 guide gun and my Win.Model 70 Featherweight in .358. But if I do my part, I've had 1/2 inch groups off the bench with the Remington 250 grain factory loads.

A 35 whelen pump is almost like shooting an auto because the shell casing is always self ejected. Just have to slide the pump forward.

My brother had that gun for several years, and I will say it definately has more recoil than an 06 from the same model. Sort of like comparing a 130 gr 270 to a 180 gr 30-06.

ya i have the 7600 whelen carbine and it belts pretty good with 200's. it just about ejects the shell itself off the bags. i will be trying the 250's this weekend after getting my trigger done and new scope mounted. it still doesn't hold a candle recoil-wise to my win 94 timber carbine in 450. that thing really belts you.

Hunt/Fish365,

I have the same issue with mine! Most times, the action opens during recoil. If I shoot it standing up with no hand on the pump handle, it will actually auto-eject! I had it to a Remington certified smith who told me if he roughed up walls the chamber a bit it might hold the expanding cartridge case better - didn't change a thing!

I'm loath to mess with it cause it shoots so good, but that is a bit un-nerving!

There is a huge difference in recoil between the 200 grain and 250 grain bullets.

I have shot both in my 7600 rifle and can notice the difference.

My 750 35 Whelen carbine kicks very little.
