Re: Weatherby versus Kimber

Look @ Cooper. .5 MOA guarantee is more that you'll get out of the two you mentioned.

    I'm with Bill on this, for under $1400 you can get a Cooper Varminter, super accurate, jaw dropping good looks and my personal favourite .22 centrefire......22-250 Ackley [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks to all of my fellow "varmint hunters" for responding to my question. I will definitely check out the Cooper Varminteer rifle as well as the Weatherby SVM.

    Shoot me an email. I've got a Cooper in a 22-250 and a 220 Swift. Email me and I'll shoot you a price.

    Sort of off subject, but hey dasslp what part of NM are your stomping grounds?
    Thought it would be neat to find someone else in the area thats into the same stuff.
    I live in Ft. Sumner FYI.
    A friend just bought a VSSF II in 22-250. What little I have seen, it will group under 1" with factory ammo. Haven't got to build any loads for it yet, but may soon. It should shoot better than 1/2" after load development.
    I couldn't convince him to spring for the Cooper. I tried to, but it didn't work when I told him they were single shots. I think I heard Cooper is gonna start building repeaters though.
    Good luck in your quest!

    I live northwest of Portales. Did you grow up in Ft. Sumner? I went to school at Floyd and graduated in the mid 80's. I shoot prarie dogs on my Dad's farm and ranch. Changing the subject some, we've had a tremendous run of wild, feral pigs over the past couple of months. My dad has shot three in the last 6 weeks alone out running the calves. Some pretty big ones at that. I had a friend shoot one a couple of years back that took 4 grown men to load in the back of the pickup. Thing probably weighed between 350-400 pounds. You guys ever have those up around Ft. Sumner? It's good to meet someone from New Mexico.
