Just wanted to post a quick update about a husky 1640 in .30-06 I acquired from Simpsons back in June. Finally got to take it out and shoot it this week at elk camp. It has a very sharp bore for a 1962 made rifle and with a few factory 165 grain core-lokt's I had lying around and factory irons I shot the following group at 100 yards. At the widest it was a little under 1.5", and this was my first 3 shots with a center fire rifle in over a year, shooting prone in the dirt, no support. These guns can shoot! For the $400 price tag you can get them for when they're to be found, you just cant be beat it. I wanted to put this out there for anyone on the fence about getting an older husky. They uphold the swedish standard.

Nice shooting. Simpson imported a few hundred Husqvarna sporting rifles and they're selling for bargain prices. I bought a 640 and 2 1640s and couldn't be happier. These are very high quality rifles. The 1'st one is in 6.5X55 and the other 2 are 30-06. The 1'st & 3'rd have great German optics on claw mounts something you hardly see anymore.

nice photos. groups, i have a number of them with German optics, 5 or six German scope in waiting to be mounted just got old.
165-180 give much better results than 150's grain.
having over 40# of them 98's-1600-1900 actions in a life time, trading up to better 98+ percent's. left!
95% shot as good as new out of the box. (mostly 3006, 308's)
when reloading, flat based Speers hunting bullets produced some of my finest groups off bench> two hundred yard dime size 300 mag> when i was in my 40's<><Dan
