Long range performance of TC Venture?

Has anyone shot the TC Venture (in 300 Win Mag) out past 800 yards or to 1,000? Waffling between this rifle and the Savage/Stevens 200 in 300 WM. My main purpose is target shooting LR, and hogs and coyotes. Any input greatly appreciated. New to the site & really enjoying it.

I have a Venture in 308 and have only shot it out to 300yd targets but its dead on. Its my first rifle and I love it.

Super_r1: thanks for your input. I'm interested in the 5R rifling on the barrel and am wondering if that would make up for the fact that you can't change the stock on them.

Hillrunner: Im not sure about changing the stock on them. I really have not looked into changing mine. My venture has a bipod and scope and is still really lite so i can use it for hunting. I am now wondering if it is possible to change the stock. Will have to look into this.

Super_r1: on a Cabela's forum (from2009, I think) someone said it states in the owner's manual that the stock can only be removed by a gunsmith. That's why I was wondering about it. Maybe the newer models are different? Check your manual and let me know.

Re: Long range performance of TC Venture?

Hillrunner: I looked thru my manual again and I seen a few places where it said do not disassemble if you are not comfortable and let a gunsmith do it. Do not modify if you dont know what your doing because someone could get hurt. The usual Warning stuff. I have been looking for someone that makes an aftermarket stock and have not found one. I think one may be modified to fit but i have never done one to know what im looking for
