    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! :D

    I ordered my Cooper 19-223 with a 26”barrel and it is my understanding that for the 19s they use PAC-Nor barrels.The 19-223 has accounted for many pd’s past the 500 yard mark,all mine shoot very nicely.I would not hesitate to get a Cooper either new or used,most are well cared for and shoot great.

    I shoot a 220 Swift Cooper & Mod 38 22 HNT - both shoot great. Whatever barrel they use, they are proven to be accurate.

    AGREED! I like his use of "dirt grizzly" too! I'll have to remember that one.

    ditto. I've never seen a Cooper (for sale anyway) in less than great condition. too nice to mess up.

    Raggedholebarrels.net They are a rifle gunsmithing outfit in Nevada. They deal with Wilson in bulk for making prefit barrels, and I think they carry X-caliber and maybe Shilen for regular installations. They do the regular basics: truing, chambering, threading, fluting, like that.
