i have read a lot of things i like about the tc. i do have a 700 30-06 i got in 1980 it has never given any trouble. havent done any mods to it. it shoots well but my tikka is just flat more accurate however in 25-06 tikkas only get a 22.7/16 barrel just saying.
I like the 24in barrel I got with my TC, I think it was in 2012 TC Venture got the highest rating for it trigger in a long range specific. Shooting Times special release magazine. They have a 5r rifled match grade barrel with target crown. We sent a bore scope down mine and its like a mirror so I say they are very close to match grade quality. They are pillar bedded stocks and free floated barrels. After about 500 rounds I noticed the three locking lugs on the bolt have uniform contact at probably 90% or better I don't think you could improve upon it..now for the negatives. I don't like that the forearm is a little flimsy, on a hot day I noticed my groups opened up and it was my forearm touching the barrel from my bipod so I'm going to stiffen that with some glass bedding but keep it free floated of course.
