I had one in 30-06 during the 60's and 70's and killed a bunch of deer with it. Suddenly it started to jam. I got rid of it.

I purchased one (742) back in the early 1970s, a 30/06 ,
the one I had never shot better than a 2" 3 shot hundred yard group,
and the group center of impact at 100 yards would start drifting once the barrel got hotter,
a few years later a friend noticed it in my gun safe and ask if Id sell it!
well, when one of my friends offered me what I paid for it I jumped at the offer,
keep in mind prices for a new 7400 were now three times what Id payed for the 742,
he loves the rifle but hunts hogs in SOUTH FLA,
I doubt he's ever needed to take over a 50 yard shot.
by that time it was discontinued, and the 7400 rem was out.
and used the cash to buy a browning lever action ,in 358 win,
it was one of the best , and most consistently, accurate,
carbines I ever owned and I still use that BLR
