Just saw the CNBC segment

It was very alarming. While I do not like bolt action rifles because of my being lefthanded and taught to fire righty in the Army. What concerns me is that is that I am in the market for a semi Rem 750 in the 308 chamber and wondering if there is a similar or like problem in that model.

On TFL I have seen many posts calling the 740/742/7400 "jamamatics." Is Remington covering up on that issue also?

Has any one had jamming in the 750?

700s are bad, send them to me for disposal.

Already a thread discussing this.

This is also off topic for Law & Civil Rights.
