For whatever my opinion is worth, you are by no means flaming Cooper nor should this thread be altered/removed. I have several of their rifles and have had good experiences - that doesn't mean they are infallible. Experiences are only "facts" to those who have actually experienced them....
I am not a fan of removing issues that people have with products (if they are being fair, as IMO you are) as this sacrifices the credibility of everyone's opinions and experiences. I want to make decisions on what to buy by measuring everyone's collective experience (and make my own decisions on who is credible).
The flip-side is that it is important that you follow up as well - when you identify the issue/resolution please post it so we can collectively get a little smarter. I think you are going to find a smoking gun somewhere outside of load development but we'll see (I'm wrong a lot)
