Re: Who Said the .22 Hornet Wasn't Accurate?

I thought my rifle shot pretty good, but one hole groups? All day long? Wow!

Now I feel horribly inadequate. . . :(

Who Said the .22 Hornet Wasn't Accurate?

I have a buddy that gives me a bad time about my Hornet, claiming that it is an inherently inaccurate round. I guess nobody ever told my rifle. . . http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn124/TaxPhd/IMG_0358_2.jpg Cooper Model 38 Varminter in .22 Hornet. 40 grain V-Max 13 grains of Lil Gun It's pure po...

Re: Prairie Doggin' in God's Country

I'm already planning to add a 20 VT to the mix. I just have to sell a couple of guns to finance a new Cooper to add to the two model 38's I already have. :wink: Sage rats are DEFINATELY on the list for me to do. I'd like to do it this year, but I'm probably a little late to be able to figure out whe...

For those of you that aren't blessed to be able to live were the prairie dogs roam, thought I'd post a few pictures to show you what you're missing. http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn124/TaxPhd/IMG_0353.jpg http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn124/TaxPhd/IMG_0347.jpg http://i303.photobucket.com/a...

Re: CZ 527 in 221 Fireball. What to Do?

Scott , that CZ in 221FB is now quite a desirable item, and there are many who would snap it up in a heartbeat if you decide to sell, as CZ does not offer the caliber at present, and there's guys that constantly cruise the net for them. I've also got a Cooper M38 in 221FB and like yours, it easily ...

CZ 527 in 221 Fireball. What to Do?

I have a 527 in 221 Fireball, and I have never got it to shoot as good as I think it should. It's not bad, maybe an inch on a good day, but when I compare it to my Cooper mdl 38 in the same caliber, the CZ falls short, as my Cooper shoots in the 2's when I do my part. Given that I have one rifle in ...

Re: Re-Chambering a Cooper

I f they won't return the old barrel, that solves my problem. I'll find another 'smith to do the re-chambering.

Re: Re-Chambering a Cooper

Got a response from Cooper. They said they would re-barrel the rifle, but not re-chamber.

I wonder why?

Re-Chambering a Cooper

I have a Cooper mdl 38 Varminter in .22 Hornet, and I would like to re-chamber it to .22 K Hornet. Does Cooper do this kind of gunsmithing service on their rifles, or do I need to find an independent gunsmith? If so, does anyone have recommendations?

Thanks!

Re: What is your go to shot gun?

My go-to gun is very unique. It is an E. Harrison (predecessor company that joined Cogswell to become Cogswell & Harrison, for those of you that know English guns), 12 bore, round action, assisted opening, boxlock ejector. That's right. Round action, assisted opening, boxlock. There are some out the...

Re: Leupold Custom Shop 2.5-8X

Scope is as advertised. In a word, perfect. The transaction was smooth, with no hassles.

I am very pleased with all aspects of the transaction, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Rick again. He is definitely one of the good guys.
