    Cooper Model 52

    I have had my cooper m52 Excalibur 6.5x284 for about 6 months and love it. It consistently shoots 1/4-1/2 minute groups out to 800 yards. Haven't shot it any further yet. Great trigger, easy to clean and point of impact varies very little hot or cold foul shot or not. It's a joy to shoot. Mine...

    Hey Greyfox I will look for that extra little bump in velocity . You and I have quite a bit in common. I too hunt Deer, Antelope(NV, Wyoming),Elk and coyotes. Looking for a god pig hunt close to home like California. Going to slip out today and call a few dogs. Thanks for all the great input.

    New Cooper 6.5x284

    Ya KC I am really liking this caliber. I have been involved in the 30 caliber rifles for a long time. I forgot how enjoyable it can be just to go out and shoot at paper when there is nothing else open. Reloading this stuff makes it great. I a reloading for about 16-18 bucks a box of 20. Thats...

    New Cooper 6.5x284

    Hey Greyfox Thanks for the info, I went up to 53gr of 4831sc but was only getting 2760fps out of my rifle. The groups really opened up. I was confused on why the speed wasn't going up in equal increments it .5grain increases. Because the groups where getting worse I stopped. It looks like I...

    New Cooper 6.5x284

    Yes that is the way it came from Cooper. I want to stay accurate and dont need to get any more speed if Accuracy is going to suffer. Thanks for the confirmation on the speed. It was about 20 degrees out at 4000'.

    Anyone know the recipe for Black Hills 6.5x284 142gr SMK loads?

    I was surprised when I called Cooper to get some load data for my new cooper M52 6.5x284 that they specifically told me not to shoot Black Hills ammo that it was way too hot. I went out today and was trying the 4831SC from 49-51 gr with 140 gr Bergers and was getting great groups at 50gr of 4831...
