    A little off the subject, a lot of pros and cons on cooper's. I've coveted them for a long time. Wondered about your opinion on a wilson savage prefit barrel. There out there pretty reasonably priced. Comments ?

    I recently bought a Cooper 92 Backcountry in 6.5-284. Best group with handloads was .3” at 100 yards with 140 Berger elite hunters and H4350 pushing them 2890. Crazy how well they shoot considering how light the rifle is. Can’t wait to pack it this year hunting.

    Any update on your rifle from cooper? Mine is doing the same thing not ejecting the brass, sometimes case sticking in the chamber also. Doesn't take much to tap the out but it's frustrating me. I emailed them last week, haven't heard back

    I talked to Glen on the phone and Andrew finally replied to my email. Both feel its the extractor and asked for the bolt .I Sent it in Monday . They said that would get it back right away.

    I just emailed Andrew. We will see how it goes. I might buy an AR50 A1 this weekend just because. Hope it puts more smiles on my face than my cooper so far.

    Cooper finally replied and have not touched the rifle. Its been awhile. They must have an extremely long line of warranty work getting done.

    Talked with a Cooper rep. They apologized for taking so long and said they would mail me something. Not sure what it is yet.

    They mailed me a slip over scope cover like a coozie and some stickers. I think I am going to ask them to send it back to me so I can send it to a smith for repair and re barrel since they cant seem to get to it. They must have an extremely long line of warranty claims.
