Re: Cooper Rifles

I have heard that from so many Cooper owners. I have talked with Cooper and they have a lot of options to give you the rife that you want ...........I kind of makes you wonder why you would spend more to get the same. Everyone I talked to said that the accuracy was right where you are at...............Some guys have four or five Coopers. I was looking at getting the Excaliber in the .280 Ackley. The magnum calibers are about $800 more do you know why? Not to much difference between a .280 AI and the 7mm Remington Magunum.

Re: Cooper Rifles

I have a 6.5 x .284 phoenix mdl 22. Would not get rid of the gun for anything. It is not a matter of finding a load. It will shoot anything really good and some freaking incredible. I look for low ES and go. Currently holding 3/8 MOA and less out to 1000 all day long when i do my part with the wind. I am running a stout load of 4831sc topped with a 142 SMK and this combo gives me ES in the teens. I also have a load with barnes 120 tsx that will do 1/2 MOA out to 1000. With SMK I literally have 1.25 vertical. capable of 1/4 MOA if I could read the wind better. At 100 yards it's stupid literally 1 hole groups. I wish I had one in every caliber I shoot.

Re: Cooper Rifles

I own a Cooper and it is everthing they said it would be. After I got mine two of my buds got one too and they all shoot verrrry well. I have been to the factory and met the people that create these fine rifles. The cutomer service is one reason to buy a Cooper beside the way they shoot. We just came back from the Cooper "One Shot" contest in Hamiltonand we stopped at the factory with a >22 benchrest rifle that somehow got a ding in the crown. Mike from Cooper took the gun aprt, cut and recrowned the muzzle, rebead blasted the barrel and did a trigger job, all while we waited at no charge!
That my friends is customer service at it's finest

Re: Cooper Rifles

I have a Cooper in 6.5x284, 1:8 twist, 26". Shoots .25MOA. So far 9 straight, one shot kills, on deer and antelope between 500 and 1000 yards. This rifle's a definite gem! My trigger is at 3.5#. Crisp pull and tight groups, decided not to touch it. Feels more like 2# pull.

To make you wonder even more so, I have a Savage LRH in the same caliber that shoots the same as my Cooper. Quality and workmanship doesn't come close though.

Re: Cooper Rifles

What kind of price range are we talking here? They have no prices on their website.
