    Default H&R .308 Ultra Rifle

    I have a H&R .308 and been having a problem with it. The breech will not stay closed after firing a round! I sent it back to H&R for repair and they said it was fixed, think again, went to the range today and after two rounds the breech came open again, not alot, but enough to stop shooting. I was wondering if the round I am using is too much? I am using Hornady 150gr Super Performance rounds. I was wondering if this could be the problem Any ideas?

    It sounds, to me, like the locking lug is worn/damaged/misplaced. I've seen this happen with some of the older H&R single barrel shotguns - when they were worn out. The action, standing breech and locking system should be more than adequately strong to handle the .308 cartridge.
    You are talking about the Single shot/SB-2 Ultra, are you not?

    Yes I am. I finally contacted H&R and they said that that will make it right. I had already sent it to a shop on Tulsa, Ok that does work on H&R's and they sent it to me, but what they did was not a fix. So I am sending it to H&R on their dime. Thanks

    I have a Handi-rifle in 44 mag. and it also does this from time to time. From reviews I've read online, it's a pretty common problem with the Handi-rifles. Hopefully they get it fixed for you.

    murdam,
    You're welcome, thanks for thanking and good luck with your H&R. I've got a bunch of MODERN H&R shotguns and rifles - all single shot - and I enjoy shooting the rifles in .45-70 and .22 Hornet. I also have a bigger bunch of the OLDER (pre 1952) shotguns - they're just for show, AFAIC.

    One thing people do to accelerate the wear on the locking mechanism ,especially in older shotguns ,is snap it open one handed.This puts undue stress on the frame and the frame hinge pin which gets tweaked just enough to keep the lug from ligning up ,.
