I’ve been wanting a Cooper for quite a while and finally “pulled the trigger” on this Backcountry in 6.5x284. I mounted a Vortex Razor LH HD 3-15x42 in Talley lightweight rings. After attempting to adjust the Trigger Tech down to the pull weight I like and not being able to do so, I called both Triggertech and Cooper and got the same answer: with the heavy firing pin spring that Cooper uses in these rifles, the Triggertech won’t adjust to the advertised 1.5lb minimum(2.5# was as low as I could get it).....they even state this on their website. So I ordered a Jewell without a bolt release and now I’m set up and ready to go! At 6 lbs, 15.7 oz, I know this isn’t a long range rifle but I’m anxious to see just how far I can be effective with it.....not that it really matters, as I bought it to use primarily as a guide rifle. I’m hoping it will shoot 140 VLDs well since they shoot so good in all my other 6.5s. I’d be interested to hear any reports from anyone that has used this model at any reasonable long range!

Mine shoots awesome, tested out to 1025 so far. Hope your spiral fluted bolt is flat on the underside, as mine wasn't and it crushes the brass when feeding thru the magazine. Mine is back at Cooper right now for warranty work.

Update: since this post, I’ve found an Excellent load and “ bloodied” it a few days ago with a 182 4/8” South Texas Whitetail. Really pleased with this rifle!
