    Brought home a 7600 in .35 Whelen.. Custom

    So I went into my LGS just browsing and stumbled across a Remington 7600. When I saw the tag said .35 Whelen and the price wasn't ridiculous, my wheels started turning. I currently had 2 average Savage rifles posted on another site and was getting almost no interest. So i took them into the shop the next day and ended up trading straight up. Now for the 7600...
    It is clearly not all original, but the modifications are all great in my book. Barrel cut to 20" and Mag na ported and I think a laminate stock. Also an added recoil pad that looks slightly odd, but it's on there solid and definitely does help. I really only like the stocks on the older 760s and this one resembles those lines much more than the fancier 7600 stocks. I shot it yesterday, off hand at 50 yds with ammo I have loaded for my CVA V2 Scout. Scope (older Nikon 1.5-4.5x20) is already minute of deer. This rifle is ready to go. Beyond excited that I found this thing in a little shop down the road.

    Looks to me like someone put a lot of thought into that project. What a great timber rifle.

    I just wish I lived somewhere that had some larger game. I love the .35+ caliber stuff, but whitetail and maybe one day a black bear are all I've got in VA. My .444 and now 2 .35 Whelens will still see plenty of use however, over gunned or not.

    Nice rifle. All business for sure. The stocks look like plain Walnut in your pics.
    I hear there are Elk in some of your western counties. So someday maybe!

    People say money can't buy happiness But it can buy me a Marlin and ammo to shoot in it, dies, powder bullets...
