My GOD what a story!I have a Remington 760 in .30-06 my father gave me back in 1984. I started calling it my "family unit rifle". When I lived in Alaska you could take 5 deer and 5 caribou. Took a bunch of mom and the kids up there. Had to have inch and a half cut off the barrel and get it reblued from the salt water. I hunt off horses these days here in MT and couple years ago my mount decided he had an itch that couldn't wait and went to the ground rolling with me still on him. Bent my barrel. Local smith said he thought he fixed it but as it warms up second, third, fourth shot keeps walking to the right. It's but a cold bore shooter now. So now the 760 is retired. No barrels I can find for it. I took more game with that rifle than all the rest I have added up.
I just got of the phone of a 2 hour conversation with my (child hood) brother about out 760s!!!!
