anyone have a TC venture?

Looking at the TC venture in 6.5x.284. wondering if anyone has experience with these and if they shoot well. Would like it too shoot 130-140 grain into under 1" three shot. I drive 120 mile each day for work and like too have a rifle with me. With the influx of oil workers up here we also have had and influx of crime. Leaving my $4000 custom rifles in my car all day or night concerns me. I love my 6.5x.284 so when I saw they had one with 24" tube and adjustable trigger I thought I'd check it out. thanks

    I have not shot one in 6.5-284 but I have shot a number of them in different calibers. I have a friend that owns a gun shop in North East NC and my hunting buddy does all the sighting in of rifles for his store. When I go over to deer hunt for a month every year I help do the sighting in. All the T/C Venture rifles, and that has been a good number because of the price and they seem to be a good rifle, I have shot have been very accurate for an out of the box rifle shooting factory ammo, Federal blue box. Easy under 1" at 100 yards. As far as I know there have been no problems with these rifles. None have been brought back with complaints while I have been there and I am in the store everyday during the middle of the day because I park my camper just outside the back door. Hope this helps you.

    Thanks, I thought they should shoot that well. Anyone know where to get a after market stock? I guess you could get one from the factory but then it wouldn't be that much more to go with the icon.

    Been there, researched that. Nobody makes a stock for it as far as an inletted deal with the bedding block. Manners makes the Warlord stock for TC ( awesome) but, will not sell them to the public. Make sure you torque the action screws correctly. Important on this rifle. I am sure Chad Dixon or some other reputable smith could bed one. The hogue on mine is decent, just a little limber in the foreend.
