Hello
I came onto this Ultra Rare find just a few weeks ago in one of our smaller gun shops here in Town. In 1967 H&R sold these Ultra Bolt action rifles and they were known as the Model 300. The Name Ultra was selected from the barrels they used being a Douglas Ultra rifled Barrel. The actions are made in Bellgium by F.N. and the trigger and floor plate are made by Sako which is fully adjustable for Creep and Trigger Pull weight. The stocks were Fagen and hand checkered in house by two woman that worked for H&R, and the sights are Williams with the front sight being a Gold Bead. These guns were offered in small quantities for about Four Years before they were discontinued due to high import costs. This one came to me Lightly fired with the Vintage Leupold Pre-Vari-X scope that has a Patent number on the eye relief portion. The Only thing H&R about this gun are the factory crest stamps and the Butt Pad. It is only the second one I have seen in my life time

I've been considering one of these H&R Ultra rifles in .223, lately. I think the first centerfire rifle advertisement that ever caught my attention (this was a looooong time ago...) was for the H&R Ultra in .17 Remington, but I'd rather have one in a caliber that easy to get ammo for.

I hadn't even realized they made them in .308, so this is fascinating to see!

I really like that '60's-style roll-over comb.

Hello Earl
If you are Talking about this Gun Being the model 300 Ultra Bolt rifle, I Hate to dissapoint you, they did not make this rifle in .223. They made it is .243 Winchester and .300 Win Mag, 7 MM Magnum, .308 Winchester & 358 But it was not made in .223 Caliber.
