Re: Cooper Rifles
This is my first post on LRH, even though I've been a member for some time now. I mostly like to just read threads to see what what most folks are shooting and how they like thier rifles.
I just recieved my first new Cooper (54 Excalibur in 308 win.) put Ferrel rings, bases and installed a Vortex pa 6.5x20 scope on it and just could'nt believe the results. For a 6.5 lb out of the box rifle to shoot this good is insane, especially with factory ammo. Rem match 168 gr, SMKs. I got 2 better than 1/4 moa groups at 100 and shot steel at 400, covered all three shots with my snuff can! I couldn't be happier with this rifle all things considered, and will never sell it.
High end custom gun builders will give you a 1/2 moa garanty but few will do it in a 6.5 lb. gun, and it will cost you a lot more dinero. I love this thing, problem is it out shoots my custom Christensen 280 AI. and it shoots good, better than 1 moa.
I'm afraid this will be my new go to rifle for most everything I hunt. It's a really nice and handy little rig.
