I've had this rifle for many years. i used it for mostly tracking deer in snow,Because it is a semi-auto i liked having the quick 2nd & 3rd shots on running deer.The problem i had with the 742 in .30-06 was the gun jamming when the shell was going in chamber.I used Remington Core-Loc 180 gr. Softpoint.I changed to rem.Core-loc Pointed Soft Point 180 gr. & never had any more problems.A friend had same setup in.308 & never had a problem.But every one i knew with a .30-06 in this gun had problems.Has anyone else experienced this.Thanks Al Wanna kill these ads?
