I knew there were many produced however not nearly as many as 30-06

I had never seen a used 7400 in 308 right next to it in the used rack was a 7400 in 30-06

the price for the 7400 in 30-06 was 400 the price for the 308 was 650

308win 742 , 74 , 7400 rifle users almost never complained of the issues the 30-06 users did less powder and I suspect exactly the same gas port the 30-06 was over-gassed in my opinion and Remington could have made it right with a gas orifice kit or something similar but never did

I didn't find it much of a surprise that the 308 was 250 more even in price with the 76 760 and 7600 pump action rifles

the concept was there , the execution was a let down in time.

I have one in 308. Been reliable as day and night. It's 40 years old and my go to rifle for everything. I use a snake bore to keep the barrel going and rem oil. Also use gun scrub to clean. It loves federal fusion 150 grain. Which i have 250 bullets for reloading. Its not thrilled with 165 grainers.
Looks as good as new. Actually would buy another if i could find one. Puts meat on the pole every year. Also love the quick follow up shot. Have killed 2 deer back to back within 2-3 seconds of each other here in south carolina. I also plan on using it for my moose hunt. I love mine. Sarge


Getting old is a fatal mistake

Always looking for reloading componets

I've got a 7400 in .308 with black composite stocks. I think someone added those later. I don't think the 7400 came out with black stocks. I put a Leatherwood scope on it I don't recall what size groups I got. Yep I would consider selling it.

If you're looking, Dill's Outdoors in Bangor Maine just got one in! I own a 1955 740 in .308, absolutely my favorite rifle. Beautiful wood stock. That is a well-known Maine deer rifle.

not for 650

had it been 400 I might have considered it

I have the 742 in 30-06 I just load it like it is a 308 my load for 30-06 has only 2 gr more than the 308 load.

I think some of the later 7400 did the black stocks not long before they changed to the 7500
