Cooper 6.5x.284????

Hey what do you guys think of cooper rifles. Half inch guarantee and not much more than a sendero. Only bad part is looks like only single shots. Anyone have one or experience? How good are the triggers? Thanks

I am pretty sure that everyone on this forum swore off Cooper arms, some even promised they were going to burn theirs or throw them away. It had something to do with Cooper donating money to Obama. I always got the impression that they are good guns, never owned one.

Re: Cooper 6.5x.284????

I have a good friend that has had 3 coopers 2 in 6.5x284 and one in 25-06 and they all shot fantastic

we practice on clay's out to 800 yds a lot
and he can easily hit them
and on paper they are excellent 100 to 800 yards

his grandson (13 yrs) shot a antelope at 706 yds this year with the 6.5x284

so aside from political issues they shoot great

I have shot 4 different coopers and they were all great

Dan Cooper is gone from the company now so I personally don't have a problem with buying one if I had the extra cash. I have heard nothing but good things about the Coopers and you can get some models in repeaters. But I dont think you'll find the 6.5 Norma in a repeater.

If you get it, you are likely to be very happy with it.

Troutslayer- I have two of the Coopers both in 6.5-284. They both shoot great. Triggers are fast, glassy and smooth. Very, very nice. One needs to go. If you are interested in one of these, let me know. I am getting ready to list it on this site.

Yeah I was thinking about it. Have you tried bergers in it? I was told by berger that the twist isnt fast enough to stabilize them.
