Cooper

I am looking at possibly buying one of the jackson hunters in 280 AI. I was looking for info on going with the AI or just getting the normal 280 rem. Any info would be great.

Re: Cooper

Thanks for the info. I have a 204 single shot that shoots great but would like to try the repeater. What does everyone think of the ackley improved version. Is it worth it or should i just go with the regular 280.

Re: Cooper

I have the Cooper model 52 Jackson hunter in the 280 REM. It shoots 150 Swift Sciracco 2's at 2800 fps. It typically shots right at a 1/2 inch five shot group. I am sending it in however to get A.I.ed. When I got my rifle they weren't making the A.I. yet due to the needed modifications for the detachable magazine. I figure after hunting season I will have it done. I love the rifle!!!

Re: Cooper

Before you fork out the dollars for this keep in mind the resale value and adjust accordingly. Just keep this in mind..
