I am thinking of getting a Cooper Jackson hunter in 25-06
never seen one in person..
I have a Tikka 308 and 2 Sakos, a 270 and a 243 (my son's now)

I am toying with the idea of selling the 270 and getting a 25-06 and the Cooper Jackson Hunter is the one that gets my attention... I shot a lot of deer growing up in South Texas with a 25-06 and it has a soft spot for me...

been googling and forum searching, not a ton of info on them out there

thanks in advance

There you go. If you haven't read it already, here's a review from Rifle Magazine.

When I was looking for a new hunting rifle a few months ago I ran across a Cooper 52 Jackson Game at Cabela's in Omaha, NE. It was the first one I've seen. The gun manager there knew some about them and told me they were Cooper's move into American big game hunting. I liked it, and I compared it with the new Sako 85, and a Weatherby Mk V. The Cooper stock has to be looked at closely to appreciate it. The rifle just looked like a well built American style traditional hunting rifle, nice walnut and well finished metal.

A friend of the family is a Dakota stocking dealer, and personally after looking at the two, I think the Cooper offers a lot of rifle for the money.

If I weren't shopping for a 300 magnum, I probably would have bought the Cooper. Who knows after finishing a couple AR projects underway, I might end up with a .270 or 25-06 Cooper.

Maybe someone else will have a review with some trigger time for you. Hope the article helps.
