i saw what was left of a 7600 that was fired with a large overload of fast powder and i mean a large overload with a 180gr bullet, reciever sides were buldged out and the whole trigger group and magazine were blown down and out, the owner got a broken finger and had trouble hearing for a few days. i can,t think of too many bolt or lever actions that would have held up as good while containing the hot gases that would have caused more injuries. i know of no 760,s or 7600,s that are or were made of soft metal. with the whole reciever closed to the rear they will handle more hot gases with out injuries than a bolt or lever. eastbank.
