I've hunted with a 760 in 06 for more than 30 yrs now. 18" 30.06 with a ton of rounds through it. Biggest issue you will have is cleaning it. I switched to wipe out and the otis pull through system. That has kept it shooting most ammo sub moa and in the case of my 180 pro hunter extremely accurate.
If your going to hunt this rifle pick the bullet type for the situation. I hunt alot with shots measured in double digit feet vs lr type shots. It will kill out as far as you can hit but the whole set-up is best suited for tracking and stalking cover.
7-08 with a good 140-160 cut the barrel down to 19" with an rmr or low powered cqb style optic.
If you have young eyes a willams peep makes it carry like no other rifle. If I could still use one I would.
