I have tested loads and there are two loads lately that really shine in my 750 Woodsmaster. First is the Sierra 165gr HPBT using 57grs of IMR4350 or 57grs Norma MRP with Winchester brass, 210 Federal primer, these are 1 1/4 to 5/8 inch. Second, there is a real great load using the Nosler Partition Protected Point 180gr using 59grs of Norma MRP with Winchester brass, 210 Federal primer, and it is under an inch giving 2675-2710fps. This second load really gives the 750 carbine a lot of uses whether up close on a black bear, large hog, or taking a moderate to long shot on deer. The Nosler Partition Protected Point is constructed to open up at low speeds and still give great bone busting, organ destroying power by letting a lot of air in and spilling a lot of blood out the wound chanel. My 750 takes anything I put in it from factory to handloads. I believe Remington got it right this time. I am more than pleased with mine and it is such a quick and handy little carbine to move around when I am up a tree or moving up tight cayons. I am glad I bought one and tried it and handloading has giving a lot of lattitude with this rifle.
