I have a m-96 that I have never shot. the barrel looks new when I look down the bore. it is also threaded,i guess for the wooden bullet. does anyone know what threads is used so I can rethread this.in all the moves I had made I reckon it got dragged just enough to scratch up the threads

M14 x 1. That is 14 m.m. dia. and 1m.m. pitch


...maybe buy one of these. We Swede collectors usually hate the aftermarket muzzle brake / flash hiders but tolerate these caps as a necessary evil to protect threaded barrels.

Some "vintage" loads from a good copy of Speer Manual #3 as noted by previous owner on the "Loading Notes" page. First link is the 6.5x55 loads, second link is a photo of the page. I have tried to copy and do some QC, please double check loads against a good manual as to being appropriate.

Point of aim adjustment in decimeter. Zero in your case (POA=POI USING N/41 ammo). Since the Husqvarna came out at the time of the m/41 ammo, their sights are for the most part calibrated for it and few need ‘holdunder’.

My Swede liked them very much.
They now have an InterLock version, it might be worth trying in your guns.

I used to hunt with a post 64 Winchester Model 70, that came stock with a floated barrel. I still have 4 of the full boxes of 160 grain Hornady bullets. I quit using the 160's when Hornady changed the .264 diameter back to the cannular. Before that it ran all the way out to the start of the ogive, I could shoot 3 shot clovers with that rifle at 100 yards, killed a lot of deer with it.
Probably why it was considered a barrel burner. I changed to Winchester factory ammo 140 grain power point, and they shot to same POI as the 160 grain round nose at 100 yards. Whatever Winchester did to that particular rifle, it still shoots 1" groups at 100, and POI does not change, makes for a good back up should you need it in an emergency if a different gun is damaged or someone forgets his, or in my son's case he loaned his rifle to his wife, and grabbed the 264, killed a nice buck with it on opening day, never had to sight it in bullet went right where he was aiming.

Just picked up a 1906 M96, will see how it shoots when I get it from my FFL.
