I just bought a new Remington 750 in 35 Whelen. For those that don't know, it is a repeating firearm, holds 4 in the box, 22" barrel vs the 18 1/2 carbine. It replaced the 7400 and the 742 before that. I have my grandma's old 1960 something 742 in 30-06. It feels good to shoot and is really a lot of fun. Unfortunately it has a 4-6" spread at 100 yards. I believe Remington has fixed some issues with the older guns and made the newer ones a bit more reliable, at least I hope so.
Does anybody have experience with the 750 or 7400?
How about the 35 Whelen? I kind of like the looks of it. Makes me think I am going old school. It has a big bullet in 200-250 grains with close to a ton of energy at 300 yards. Anybody have thoughts on it? How about recoil? Good bullets? I was hoping the 225 TSX would work out good, maybe the 225 or 250 partition. We will see in few weeks.
I had to look around quite a bit for brass dies and bullets on line. There was really nothing in town.
