    Just a bit of information for you to chew on. The Rem 760 & 742 has been out of production for quite a while and NO SPARE PARTS ARE AVAILABLE. If you break something it becomes a wall hanger. I suggest you find you a 7600 if you want a pump rifle.

    The 7600 was made in 35 Whelen, if you can find one that might be a way to go.
