Rem 750...anyone know if these are available? I've read where this model (semi-auto)is an *improved* version of the 7400...

Yeah, the Model 750 is Remington's new autoloader - a new and improved version of the 7400 Woodsmaster. According to Remington's website, the 7400 will still be available, but only with the synthetic stock. The 750's are supposed to be 2006 rifles, but I haven't seen any available in stores yet. Might be awhile.

I'll tell you what though... if I were in the market for a new deer rifle right now, I'd be really torn between that new Remington and Winchester's new SXR autoloader. Both are pretty impressive looking guns, and both are available in .30-06.

JD, I'm interested in two: maybe 06's or 08's...as long as they are more reliable than the 7400's...

The Remington catalog for 2006 lists the 750 woodsmaster rifle as available in the carbine (18.5" bbl) and standard versions (22" bbl). Calibers listed are 243, 308, 270, 30-05, and 35 Whelen. The carbine is only available in the 308, 30-06, and 35 Whelen. Twist is 1 in 10 until you get to the 35 Whelen where it is 1 in 16.

I've been a .30-06 fan for years, but I have to admit I'm really intrigued by this resurgence of the .35 Whelen. I'd be in agony over which one to choose if I was in the market right now. I'll just keep telling myself over and over and over that I don't need one. Maybe that'll work.

As for reliability, I own two 7400's and a 742, and my father and 4 uncles all hunt with 7400's, and we've never had any reliability issues with them.

I hate saying things like "you really have to keep them clean" on forums like this, because that statement carries the implication that anyone who has had problems with their firearm is obviously a brain-dead irresponsible cretin who shouldn't be allowed to mangle anything more advanced than a slingshot - but I have to say it anyway... The only time I've ever known one of us to have a reliability issue with a 7400 was when we let it get really nasty before cleaning it out.

Having said that, Remington claims the 750 is more reliable, but since the investment of a large amount of capital is involved on their part, you may want to accept that as a claim and not an established fact for the time being.

They have shown up here in Kittery ME. Daughter personally likes the fit of the 750 Carbine better than all the 308 or 30-06 semis on the used rack; and better than the BARs & Bennelli R-1s in the new gun displays.

I was hoping she'd go for the M1A, or at least a Saiga.

ETA:

JDyer: I didn't see the info on the Remington site. Are the 750's a steel receiver?

I seen a couple in a local shop today. I did'nt notice the cal. but I did notice how nice looking they were. Also, I noticed how nice a ruger target grey is. WoW!:D

Looks like I'll be picking up my (her) 750 in .308 tomorrow.

The Remington supplier showed up in town last week, only to stock the 750 in 35 whelan. Its a sweet looking rifle, very streamlined, I was intrigued. Looking forward to hearing some first hand reports on its accuracy and reliability. Another 30-06 wouldn't hurt. The ammo would be cheaper than the 35 whelan, since I don't reload anymore.

The 2006 Rem. catalog lists the weight as 7 1/2 lbs. for the rifle & 7 1/4 lbs. for the carbine. Has anyone actually held one to see how it feels? Also any comments on the performance, reduced energy, for the .35 Whelen in a carbine length barrel?

Ray P...since your daughter just got the .308 carbine, what do you think about the weight question? I got a BAR carbine in .308 this past April. I went with the BAR because it has a 20" barrel, which I prefer in a carbine, and they didn't have a 750 carbine in stock at the time to make a weight comparison.

Thanks...NYHunter

NYHunter- I picked up the 750 today; and it was a rifle, not a carbine as I had thought. It is beautiful; great lines & I like the forestock shape. Nice light weight for a steel receiver. The rifle balances & shoulders very well.

I'm getting ready to head out to the range to zero the scope now (2-7 Nikon).

You'll have my full report by tomorrow PM; as I have IDPA tonight.:)

Ray P...thanks for the initial input. How do you like the 2x-7x Nikon scope? What ammo are you using?

I've been trying to locate a 760 carbine, 1st choice, 2nd choice would be the rifle, in .308, in good condition. No luck in my area! What's the used gun market like in southern Maine for this type rifle? I'll be hunting Maine this fall and plan to hit some of the gun shops, Kittery & Lincoln, on the way up but I'd really like to locate one before then. Any help, from anyone, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...NYHunter

NYHunter:

I started here: http://www.ktpguns.com/

and found a 7600 Police Carbine (http://www.ktpguns.com/interior.php/pid/28/gid/102183) in 308.

Edited to add: The Pro Hunter 2x7x32 is very bright, and clear/crisp to the edges. No problems with loosing focus when changing power. It has a lifetime guarantee. I think it is great.
So far, I've shot the rifle with Federal Cartridge Powr Shock 180 gr SPs, and Winchester Supreme moly-coated 180 gr partition bullets. The rifle loved the FC, with sub MOA groups. The Winch was all over the place.

Has anyone actually held one to see how it feels?

Yes, and I really liked it. Feels/balances like a nice 20 gauge, just a hair heavier.

That's all I go to do, though. Didn't get to shoot it.:(

ArmedBear....thanks for the info.
Ray P... I'm looking at the 2006 Fall Edition of the Cabela's catalog, Optics section. They show a Nikon 2x-7x-32mm Pro-Staff model...nothing for a Pro-Hunter model. Am I missing something?? Thanks for the KTP link.

Ray P

You are correct. It is a Pro-Staff scope. I went by (faulty) memory.

Here's a pic from the zeroing session. The grid is 1" square. Tried posting a pdf of the target, but that didn't work. So out came the digi-cam.
Yep, the 750 is certainly accurate enough for my uses. As I get used to the trigger pull, I expect the fliers to decrease in quantity.

Nice groups! Even the 2nd group of Win. Supremes grouped about .5". The Federal is hard to beat though. It really is nice to buy a new rifle and have it shoot so well "out of the box". If the deer cooperate you should definitely have venison in the freezer this season. Good luck, let us know how you make out. :) NYHunter

Thanks! Those two groups were made with Federal Power-shoks. I would fire 4 rounds, adjust scope, and fire 4 more. I wanted the scope zeroed 2 inches high at 100 yards; and I was just moving the point of impact to the right.

The Winchester ammo was way off the paper after I zeroed for the FC.

I checked my catalogs. I bought a Nikon Pro-Staff. But I was calling it a "Pro-Hunter", which is a Simmons brand-name.
