When I fire my 750,308 cal, it will not load the next round into the chamber. Have to do it manually. Any ideas appreciated. Thank you.

Could be the magazine with bent lips. Other than that clean the living heck out of the chamber-bore area and try again. Got a Model Four from 1981 with no feeding or ejecting issues but mine does not get a lot of use honestly. Also am sure it could be an ammo issue. Are you shooting factory or reloads?

mauser9 thank you for your reply. I have thoroughly cleaned the entire rifle with extra emphasis on the chamber. I bought a new magazine. Neither appears to have bent lips. I normally use Remington ammo in it but bought some Hornady and some Federal. Still won't load a new round after firing and ejecting a round. Baffled.

I know that it can be difficult troubleshooting a gun, but can you tell what it's not doing? Other than not loading the next round.

I assume that it's extracting and ejecting OK. So I'm trying to figure out what it may be.

Is it short cycling? Is the hammer cocking upon firing? (I ask because if it's not cocking then it's likely short cycling). Gas port clogged?

Is the mag springs weak and not pushing up on the rounds enough/fast enough?

I would think Remington would have this problem solved with the newer bolt and gas system on the 7400-750 guns. I read some had feeding issues with the 742 Model. Other than a good gunsmith I am baffled. Will Remington remedy the problem?

The old 740030-06 that I had worked really well.

But would rust if you looked at it.

Wow surprising to hear. Only ones I have heard complaints of rusting were the Remington sportsman series of the 870 which have that matte finish bluing on barrel and receiver. Something concerning the bluing salts maybe? Bought my Model Four back in 81 and so far so good but more rounds will tell. NIce gun but often wonder if the 7600 pump may have been a better choice.

The 7400 that I had was bought ~2003.

Actually, I didn't even buy it. The company that I worked for had an inter-company competition to see who could do the most installs before the quarter was up because they were behind in their quota before the stockholder meeting trying to boost their customer count.

I got the gun and about $750 extra in commissions after taxes.

Seriously, after you hunted with it, you could physically see where your hand was carrying it around all day in a light brown rust on the receiver.

It was that bad.
