Another .22 Husky

Probably the most popular caliber firearm in most of the world. Many of us have more than one. They also are very collectible and still cheap to shoot.

Another .22 Husky

Postby joseyclosey » Sat Nov 05, 2011 3:26 pm

Got my eye on this one today, and its coming home with me when i get my variation sorted out. :D

Salongsgevär Nr. 365 i think, need to check the serial number just to confirm it though. Someone fitted a nice little Bushnell 4X which looks and performs well but i will try and source an original rear sight for it at some point.

Joe

I took a few schnaps of it alongside my Nr 155a at the range today.

BI, i found it at my local friendly RFD. :D The bottom photo shows the target i shot at the 15m castle range. Next job is to try it at 25m rested for group as at the shorter range the scope left the target a tad blurry.

Picked it up today and had a blast at our local range along with my Lampagyar and some Enfield trainers.

Life is good! :D

I eventually got to shoot the Husky 365 at a longer distance last week useing a few different types of ammo.
The range was 106yds and i was trying Remington Target, Remington sub sonics and Eley Hi velocity.

The Remington subs were a waste of time both in the Husky and in my Mauser 420b.

Image


The Eley Hi velocity performed well though the point of impact moved left and high and i didn't bother re-zeroing to that brand as i don't anticipate useing it in this rifle.

Image


The Remington Target which is my usual cheap plinking ammo worked pretty good too once i had re-zeroed the rifle to it.

And the view from the firing point.
