I have been keeping an eye on this post. I am glad to hear Henry fixed the problem. I believe a rough chamber was the problem. On two of the replaced barrels on my 357 BBS the chambers had melted balls of steel and looked like they had been finished with a rasp file. I had rough extraction and deeply scratched brass.

Welcome to the forum. If the head extracted and is not attached it eliminates the easy pushing it back with a cleaning rod. It might be possible to push it back with a brush attached but you run the risk of causing other problems.

Have you shot the ammo in other firearms? It seems to me the cases are weak if they split like that.
Thanks! No, I haven't fired this ammo in any other gun, This Henry is the only one I have. The ammo is Underwood 158gr.

That is really odd because Underwood is great stuff and has a nickle plated case. If it happened to me, I would probably end up taking it to a good gunsmith. Best of luck with this. I can't wait to be able to pick up the Henry Big Boy Classic 357 that I purchased online and had shipped to my local FFL. I can pick it up on 12/8.

EDIT: I just read more of this thread after my post and read that Henry took care of it. Makes me even more pleased with my recent purchase.

An update: after trying to remove the broken case myself, decided to ask Henry customer service for advice. They asked me to send the gun to them. They removed the case and replaced the barrel. All under warranty. Great customer service.
not surprised at all but always good to hear
