Default Remington 750

I just got a 750 Carbine in 308 to terminate hogs with 'extreme prejudice'.
I just got through with the initial session at the bench. The first 20 rounds were VERY disappointing!!! One failure to feed and/or go into battery after another.
But as I got to about the 40 round mark it began to function more reliably.
I put a 1.75x6 (short) Leupold on it and with silver box Winchester 150 SP it shoots 1.5 MOA. That is 'minute of hog' in my book. I am not fond of the 'light' bullet, but most of the hogs we have taken have been in the 100 to 150 range. I have some 165 Fusions and the next trip to the bench (30 feet out my backdoor) I am going to try the 165's and use them if they group 2 MOA or better.
I will keep you advised. If any of you have any first hand knowledge of an after market 10 round mag for the 7400/750 let me know please.

Jim,

Be sure the action is well lubed and especially when the rifle is new! And you should have no problems with the pigs and 150 grain bullets. I like the Hornady 150 gr. SST. They are very accurate and will flat put a deer down also.
I have an older Remington 740 in 30-06 and it is a fine old rifle. I keep the inside clean and lubed. Never lets me down. You also chose some good glass for your rifle also.

Triple K makes a decent 10 round mag for Remington autos.

150 grains of .308 is way more than adequate.

Thanks for the reply.
I will check on the Triple K. Do you have any first hand knowledge of these mags?? I have gotten mixed reviews while trying to get info on hi cap mags for this rifle.
The 150's are adequate for most of the hogs we are finding now, but we have had reports of two big boars, 300+, and I do not consider any bullet 'adequate' that does not give a complete penetration. This 'energy dump' stuff is a myth I don't buy into. I want a BIG hole all the way through!!!

You are correct. I lubed it with Break Free, both action bars and the bolt, and it helped A LOT!!!

Jim,

Shot placement if possible Right Behind the Ear! = DRT!
Have fun!

When that is possible I use this, BUT that is not always possible so you have to BRING ENOUGH gun if you find yourself on the business end of a pissed off mama or papa hog!!!!

I personally own a couple of Triple K 1911 mags, they have worked well at the range.

I have friends that have used the Triple K's with no complaints. I just don't think there are many options to choose from, and Triple K is by far the most common.

Another option is carry a couple of spare 5 round mags.

Roger that! I will run down a 10 rounder and try it before I spend a bunch of money for the 4 rounders.

I tried the 165 gr Fusions and they did about 2 1/2 MOA. If I go into the 'thick stuff' where I will be shooting 50 yds or less I will use the bigger bullets (165/180 gr), but for now (baiting them in) I will use the 150's.
I am still trying to locate a hi-cap mag.
