    I'm thinking of getting 1 of these in 30-06 but a guy on another forum said the previous model was nicknamed jam-o-matic but didn't know about these. Anybody have any info on them???

    The older Remington's from I believe the 80's were problematic. I was told it was mainly in the 742 model, and not aware if it also applied to the 750. The only reason I remember this is because I also have a Rem 742 from the 80's and I love it and has never caused me any problems.

    I did a little checking feedback at a few sites and on Cabelas there was a bunch of people complaining about jamming,some with all ammo except 1 type but then others said they had no problems with any ammo they fed it so it sounds hit & miss.

    I know there are many choices, but when I think of a .30-06 rifle it's either a Winchester Model 70 or a M1 Garand

    Otherwise, are you talking new or used? I agree it will be heavily ammo dependent for a used one depending on the era.

    New also has warranty

    I wouldn't buy it simply because it has that kind of history...and plenty of it...not just hearsay.

    Save your $$ and buy the best damn platform to ever shoot the .30-06 Springfield...the M1 Garand .

    The Model 70 is a bolt action,I already have 1 of those.
    May wind up going for a .223 instead. Not sure yet.
