Is there a source for that?

Because like I posted, even if you take off that 75% initially for the kinetic resist and then apply the shield cap to the remaining're still not going to get the OP's numbers.

That's with a 3-step process:
1) Remove bleedthrough.
2) Apply shield kinetic reduction/absorption.
3) Apply shield damage reduction.

8300 - 830 = 7470
7470 * 0.25 = 1867.5
1867.5 * X = 300
X = 83.9%

So something with a cap of 75% would have to be applying 83.9% additional damage reduction after the 75% initial kinetic reduction.

To get to the 96% damage reduction the OP was seeing with a 2-step process, shields would have to have an additional 128% damage reduction against kinetic after the 75% against kinetic. (1.28 * 0.75 to get 0.96).
