    I just got a new M54 Jackson Hunter in 7mm-08 which is the same as the Excalibur except for the stock. Unfortunately for me, after waiting a year and a half, there was an issue with barrel runout. Also the bolt cut out in the stock was not centered at all. I returned the rifle over two months ago and haven't got it back yet!

    WOW! As much as Cooper pitches quality control its hard to believe they would let that rifle leave the factory like that!

    I have a brand new Excalibur in 6.5x284 and the bolt isn't centered in the stock either. I had the gun cerakoted. You can see where the stock is rubbing on the cerakoted bolt handle. Still working up loads. Trying to get the 130 Bergers hunting to work and will add Nosler BT and Accubond.

    To me that is unacceptable for a rifle of that price! Did you relieve the area where it's touching. I can't imagine this is any good for accuracy?
