Good article. I too like the 6.5x47.
However I have one issue with your article:
Cooper Rifles, though pretty nice, are NOT considered custom rifles
, by any standard. They are production rifles. And those blueprinted and bedded semi custom Rems that I have had have all shot better than any cooper rifle I have ever shot, and cost half the price.
But other than that, I agree with just about all you said in the article.
