Cooper Rifles

I would like to get some thoughts on these rifles. I love the look, but rarely see them mentioned. I couldn't find anything when I did a search, so I figured I would ask and see what you guys think about them.

Thanks,

Chris

    Excellent rifles, I have one in 6.5-284 that shoots very well. Maybe try a search under Phoenix, there is some info here on the Coopers. Supposed to have a new repeating action out real soon. I have shot quite a few Coopers and they were all tack-drivers.

    That's what I've heard. Unfortunately, none of the shops around carry them so most of my experience with them is internet or a couple of guys I know.

    Thanks for the info

    The Coopers are very nice indeed. I was looking at some at Cliff's Safes in Boise and admiring the single hole targets that come with each gun. Noticing that there was no mention of the distance shot with the rifles I asked Cliff if they were 100 yard groups and he told me that no, they were 50 yard groups. I thought that was perhaps a bit sneaky of Cooper not to mention that on the targets. There are a lot of guns out there that can make one ragged hole 3 shot groups at 50 yards.

    Only the 22 Hornet family of cartridges are shot at 50 yds. All the other centerfire calibers are shot at 100 yds. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
