    I must have been bored this winter because i placed a custom order for a cooper excalibur with a 26" stainless barrel in 25-06 ackley improved. I started the process of fireforming brass. I have fired about 20 down the tube to form some brass. I will send the brass and loaded 25-06 win shells if the new owner wishes. The brass comes out very nice. Accuracy with the fireforming is about 1-1.5" but i just picked a charge and placed the 100gr ballistic tips to the lands so no load work up. I would suspect it to be a great shooter. I am only selling because I am cleaning up my safe and maybe buy a new bike (victory) :).

    I am asking 1600 without scope. If you wish i could include the scope (swarovski Z3 3-10 with the BRH reticle for an additional 600).

    Is this a repeater or a single shot?

    Is this rifle still available? Just out of curiousity, how do the ballistics of the 25 06ai compare to a 257 weatherby? I'm looking for a .25 caliber replacement for my weatherby due to its pickiness on bullets. I've heard nothing but good things about the coopers...thanks for any info you can give me

    I believe most will tell you that the 25-06 AI will split the difference between the 25-06 and the 257 Roy. Some may say that the ackley is similar or equal but at similar pressures the roy should be somewhat faster. Coopers are great rifles. I have several and they are all shooters.

    I can't believe this rifle is still here. Great guns those coopers. My cooper 25-06 does 3150 fps with 115 bergers. I would think the AI would get atleast another 100 fps.
    Good luck with the sale.

    I agree, this is a good price on a great rifle. Though I don't have my model 52's any longer, I still have 3 Coopers and they are shooters.
    I sold the two 52's I had because I just could not bear to beat up the stunning wood mine had, by hunting with them.
    Someone buy this rifle, quick, before I start thinking I need another one!
