Just got off the phone with Cooper they no longer rebarrel rifles at a low price it’s now going to be around 700.00 or more I have 2 when I bought them it was 125.00 if the barrel was shot out. I have a 28 nosler Excalibur with about 800 rounds down it. That was one reason I bought a 28 nosler from Cooper. I think if that was the warranty when I bought the gun they should back it.

No that’s fine that was their barrel replacement policy time of purchase it did push me and a couple buddy’s buying them at the time since 28 nosler are a little hard on barrels. I think the warranty has change to 2 years on parts broken mags things like that. Mine is out of any warranty so I can put a bartlein on it for the same price so I’ll have a Cooper with a bartlein I’m not a big fan of Wilson anyway. I think mine was like 2850.00 dollars some of their light weights are around 4000 that m92 backcountry. I have a r-bros carbon hunter which was 4800 that’s my favorite gun. Getting in that price range I would stick with Travis at r-bros every time. The barrel policy at 125.00 was to good to last I guess anyway that’s that

Seems like a ton of money for what I can't fathom! In the hunting world where vital area ranging from a volleyball to a beachball any of the el-cheappo deluxes under $400 complete will send the same bullet right there...now competition shooting is another story and I've done it many times but never in a hunting rifle...

OP I just reread your post.
There’s a huge difference between warranty and replacing a burnt barrel. I’m sure the policy change had a lot to do with most of the newer cartridge offerings being barrel burners.
700 for a factory replacement of coopers caliber, pun intended, is really fair.
Just my opinion.

That policy was nuts, though I always heard it was $200 to have done.

Regardless, that was crazy, nice, but crazy. Still don't know that I've ever even read of someone doing it

I have over 1K rounds through all my hunting rifles. I practice for real world situations with guns I actually plan to shoot in the real world. What else am I suppose to practice with, a 17 lb bench rest gun? Sure their fun too, but this IS a long range hunting forum, after all.

I did it. Had 24” 22-250AI 1/14 twist varminter. I had it threaded and shot lots of p dogs with it. A couple 300+ shot days. Smoked the throat. Went to 1.5” accuracy. Had it redone in same chamber but 1/8 and 26”. $125 base charge. Change from original was another 75 and shipping put it about $225. Thats one heck of a deal.
