I think that there are too many inconsistencies and inherent problems with the TC from what I read. I think you'll find that closing and lock up can cause a problem with accuracy, from what I read, if not done the same each and every time.
Also I think you will find that people say they have problems with the barrel and forend with clearences etc. and some spend a lot of time and money on that area.
The guys that tend to populate this site are very accuracy and detail oriented and find that a well built bolt action provides that and gives them the results they want at loooong range whereas the TC probably will only produce the same results at a much shorter range.
Like Ernie said, if it was me I'd stick with the Savage. They are proven in the accuracy department and a lot of people build dedicated long range rigs with them, either modifying stock rigs or going the full custom route.
The TC is visually appealing to a lot of people but I'd bet that if you didn't see so many on the TV shows that it might be a different story. I guess you just need to decide what your range, accuracy and consistency demands are and then make your choice.
Just remember though, when it comes to a dedicated loooong range rig, there's a reason you see everybody shooting well built bolt action guns.
