Reloading the 30-06 Rem. 760 pump

I'm thinking about buying a friends Rem. 760- 30-06 pump and if I do I'll be reloading for it. I have a Browning A bolt 30-06 that I load for, could I use the same loads in the Remington. I'm loading Rem cases with CCI B.R.2 primers, 56.5grs. R17 powder and 165gr. Sierra B.T. also same case, primer and bullet with 58grs. IMR 4350. Both these loads shoot real small groups out of my Browning.

I think you could find a good load with those combos but your over all length might be limited in that pump gun

I have been using the 165 gr sierra's for year out of my pump with 65 grs of IMR4350 and have shot one hole groups at 100 yards several times.I went to 57 grs and did not see any change in accuracy and gained very speed so I stayed at 56grs.I use Remington cases with cci 200 primers

I myself wound not invest in a Rem. 760 or the semi auto 742. There are NO available parts to fix it if it breaks anything. If anything wears out or breaks it becomes a wall hanger. If you want a pump then get a Rem 7600. Mid range loads are best in the pump and semi autos.

Re: Reloading the 30-06 Rem. 760 pump

if the price is right do it!
I have a 70's issue 742 in 3006 and let me tell you that I had a lot of trouble finding a load to function right. By that I mean cycle the action to eject, reload and cock the hammer, unless I use a HOT load it will eject and feed another round but will not cock the hammer. What my 742 demands is 180 grn pills at max load, you should not have that issue with the pump action.
That is probably due to it been an auto loader. With the pump you should not have any trouble as long as you trim, FL size, watch your OAL (keep it to sami specs) and keep your loads close to max.

BTW, for a factory issue auto I do find it fun, fast accurate and comfortable to shoot

Re: Reloading the 30-06 Rem. 760 pump

My experience with loading for the 742 has been it works best with faster burning powders in the IMR 4895 and IMR 4064 burn rate. I used 48 grs IMR 4895 with 150gr bullets and the 742s shot great and accurate. Be sure and keep that 742 gas system clean and keep that chamber clean. Not taking it down and cleaning the gas system and keeping the chamber clean has killed a many 742. A little rust and they become a jam-o-matic and a wall hanger quickly.

Thanks for the info on the 760 Rem. pump. The one reply mentioned to go with the 7600 Rem. pump, because parts are more available. Are the 760s junk? Do they break often? I have no experience with 760s was just going to buy a friends gun to help him out .
