Re: H + R trapdoor breech block repair

I have done several conversions of H&R TDs to use original breach blocks including my own OM and LBH carbine. I never found any real case hardening to be any issue. I didn't case hardening after the conversions and have no sign of wear on my H&Rs. None has been reported on the others. I have a couple thousand service level 1873 loads (400 gr8 at 1350 fps) out of the OM and like wise 45-55 loads out of the carbine. Both have several thousand 275 gr8 plinking loads through them. No problems encountered what so ever.
