Took my new ultra slug deluxe to the range today. Shooting hornady SSTs. Take my first shot, break the action, and nothing comes out! The shell is jammed in the chamber. Anyone else have this problem? Off to try and ram it out now....
Just got the shell out. Tried a spent slug shell that was fired from a different gun and it won't fit in the HR either. Brass on both shells calipers the same size. Ejector makes a strong click when the gun is opened and ejector spring seems very strong. What gives!?! Problem with chamber?
All cases expand upon firing and I believe you have a tight chamber since it ejects a factory unfired round with no problems. Scub the chamber and try again. Also try a different brand of ammo, may be the trick.
Sending it back is an option. Such a hassle though. I work with a guy who is also a gunsmith. He said he could polish out the chamber in no time flat for a couple bucks. Cheaper than shipping. Plus I trust a fellow machinist more than I do the guys who screwed it up in the first place. Apparantly not much quality control at H&R!!
You can try this take the barrel off tap the roll pin toward the front of the barrel out.Be careful there is a spring behind it only tap it out far enough to get the spring out.If the spring didn't come out pull it out.Drop a bb, steel bb for a bb gun in the hole put the spring back and the roll pin.Sometimes it doesn't take much of an increase in spring tension for them to work.
Sending it back to H&R would be the last option.Mine been back twice for missfires they didn't fix it, still missfires or now it will missfire then pierce the primer the next shot.Mine would not eject with some shells the bb seems to have fixed that.
