    I am looking at possibly buying one of the jackson hunters in 280 AI. I was looking for info on going with the AI or just getting the normal 280 rem. Any info would be great.

    Thanks for the info. I have a 204 single shot that shoots great but would like to try the repeater. What does everyone think of the ackley improved version. Is it worth it or should i just go with the regular 280.

    I have the Cooper model 52 Jackson hunter in the 280 REM. It shoots 150 Swift Sciracco 2's at 2800 fps. It typically shots right at a 1/2 inch five shot group. I am sending it in however to get A.I.ed. When I got my rifle they weren't making the A.I. yet due to the needed modifications for the detachable magazine. I figure after hunting season I will have it done. I love the rifle!!!

    Before you fork out the dollars for this keep in mind the resale value and adjust accordingly. Just keep this in mind..

    Also, you might want to know this, the owner supported Obama for President. I will never support this company again!

    The 280 and the 280 AI have the same 1/2" @ 100 yds guarantee. They come with a target shot from the factory @ 42 yds and most are one hole groups. I would go with the Ackley, but that's me and I'm a speed freak. Faster bullet more down range potential.

    I really dont want to step all over alldayhunter's thread but here is a letter that I just emailed to Cooper Arms



    I challange any of you to send a similar letter to the other US manufacturers asking them to make their commitment for or against the president elect. If you are sincere in your convictions, which I have no reason to believe otherwise, you would hold them to the same scrutiny as Cooper Arms
