    My 7600 chambered in 35 whelen is an absolute recoil beast with factory loaded jacketed ammo. Who ever said the recoil was almost the same as 30-06 is full of BS. I have the same 7600 in 30-06 and its recoil is like shooting a 243 vs a 375 RUM...

    I just ordered from Midway with the cheapest shipping. The claim was up to 7 days. It came in 3. I shipped two items with the USPS with claimed delivery of two days. One took a 1 1/2 weeks and the other was 15 days.

    There is no guarantee that tomorrow will come. I've lost 9 friends in the last 2 years. For longer trips like that I found it's cheaper to rent a fuel-efficient vehicle and you have no wear and tear on yours.
