You'll be fine shooting 2 3/4" in your 2 1/2" Husky. Most of my stash of guns are short chambered and I never bother to shorten the hulls. I feel perfectly safe! Most of mine are either damascus or light English guns so I keep pressures, velocities, and shot weights within the bounds they were designed for. IMO your Husky has a lot of extra metal in the barrels and the steel in them and the action are "modern". Enjoy!


It ain't whether you hit a bird that matters, it's the fun you have even if you don't.

I've only shot my 7/8-ounce, 1200 fps, 6300 psi, Remington STS reloads in my 310AS 12-gauge. Wouldn't hesitate to use stouter loads if I took it hunting where I felt that necessary. Once upon a time I took my 1947 vintage 16-gauge Model 310ASE when I went Pheasant hunting with a bunch of yahoos. After they had expended their loads I thought to myself "what the hell" and dropped into the back trigger for the left .030" choke barrel where I had a Remington Express #5, gave cock John a long lead and damn if he didn't fold up. Probably blind luck, but an honest 55-yard shot. I'm sure the great bulk of the Pheasants I've shot in 63 years were under 35 yards.

I need to find a couple of boxes of Gyttorp shotgun shells to display with my Husqvarnas.

A friend posted over on the Parker site awhile back that they are available in velocities of 1145, 1200, and 1290 FPS. I wouldn't hesitate to use the 1145 fps loads in the Husky, if it's sound. Thats my favorite velocity range for most of my shooting anyway. I have no idea what the pressures are on them but, being in paper hulls, I'd be surprised if they were really high. I didn't order any of them when they were introduced. I thought they were a little too pricey.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

The newer ones, both hammerless and hammer guns, often had "70" engraved on the rib extension to denote 2.75" chambers. I own/have owned a ton of them from 1880 to 1960's. A couple dozen maybe? Bought another one today as a matter of fact. Great guns, based on Sauer actions and high quality Swedish steel barrels. Hence, beefy and hell for stout.

I'm betting this one was lengthened at some point.
