HMP 75lb has an actual dia of around 0.43mm.
It is coated, but the coating is not a thick waxy one. 

Stiff? Hmm. Not as stiff as Fireline
Don't fall into the trap of comparing it to some braids that tell great big fibs about their dia.

A braid that has an ACTUAL BREAKING STRAIN (un-knotted) of around 75lb should be around 0.42-0.46mm (excluding hollow core braids)
Also look at Fireline it is well behaved on multipliers
