A custom rifle is one that uses a custom action and a custom barrel. A semi custom uses a factory action blueprinted and bedded with a custom barrel.
I have never owned a cooper but have plenty of access to several. Nice guns. Not worth the money in my opinion, but fine rifles. Their action is nice and Wilson barrels are ok. They are very good for production barrels.
They a fine rifles. Just not custom is all. But that really doesn't matter. I have seen poorly smithed BAT with Bartlein bbl custom gun that shot terribly. So you are right, it is all about how they shoot.
