Re: cooper rifle

Until you see what a properly built $7000 custom rifle is capable of, you don't know what you are missing.

I spoke with the BOTW crew at a the Denver Sportsmans Expo last fall. While Cooper makes their actions and supplies other parts, BOTW builds the rifles themselves. From what I have heard and read, they shoot right along with Gunwerks and other top end customs.
These packages are really great actually. Not only are you getting a top notch rifle and optics, it is all set up right, scope leveled and sighted in, load development is done. There is a lot of time and work that goes into putting it all together and making the system work right.

Back to that 7K custom rifle comment.
I had one built by another firm last winter. It is heavier, weighing in at 13.5 lbs scoped, but it was built as a 1000 yard varmint rifle light enough to carry on above timberline marmot hunts.
So far this month I have taken 8 at over 900 yards, one of which was at 1010, one at 1108, and one at 1156 yards. Anything under 800 does not get fired upon. It is just unbelievably accurate.

Define this then. What rifles are you shooting and what groups at distance are you getting? I notice your from louisiana and most of these expensive hunting rifle manufacturers are out west.....there is a reason that these rifles are being built and have such a demand out here.....there is a need. The reason there expensive is that there the best. When the chips are down i want the best i can afford in gear. Out here your life and hunt depends on it. No tree stands or box blinds here

If you don't mind me asking, who built your custom rifle?
