All four of my Cooper rifles are capable of better accuracy than I can hold. All shoot 1/4" or less with good handloads. Mine are 221FB, 20VT, 223 and 204R. My Phoenix "Furball" after a good morning on walkabout for rock chucks: My Cooper VR in 20VT....another good morning: I've never met a Cooper I didn't like. They just shoot, chucks fear them!
