We run 120 pounds to the acre. Plant at around one inch deep. If you are notilling into stalks, run at an angle to the old rows. It helps the trash to go through the drill easier. We run a 1890/1910 JD airseeder combo which has basically the same openers as your 750.

What crop are you following? I find it best to leave the stalks standing if you are following milo or corn. That way you don't have to use the drill to slice through a few inches of stalk before you hit dirt. We had good luck last fall doing that in milo stalks then using a harrow to knock the stalks down. Some of the fields we just left the stalks standing and by harvest they were good and rotten. Didn't give us a moments problem cutting through them.

We also plant about an inch deep. However we plant around 150 lbs to the acre. No-tilling in soybean ground always has worked better than in corn ground. Too much disease pressure in the corn stalks and trash...We are using a great plains no-till drill. All our wheat lately has been conventional behind corn.
