I just bought a TC Venture a few weeks ago. It is chambered in 270 Win. I really like the gun. My handloads shoot great in it. Mine shoots well below the 1 moa guarantee. The last group I shot with it measured less than 3/4 of an inch with 5 shots. That was the 4th load I tried in the gun and the last for a 130 grain Hornady SST.
I did buy a box of factory loaded Remington Core Locks but I just used then to set the scope. 3 shots and thats it. My son did shot some of the factory loads. I have no clue how good the factory loads shoot because I just used them to sight the gun in.
The trigger was about 3.5 lbs and had some creep in it. I followed the directions that came with the gun and lowered the pull a little. The instructions said that the length of pull was not adjustable. However it actually is easily adjusted. If you buy one and have a lot of creep just shoot me a e-mail and I will be happy to take some pics of how to adjust the creep. You can adjust it with a allen wrench and a pair of needle nose pliers. Mine now has zero creep and breaks around 2.5 pounds.
The safety feels a little cheap but works well. 2 position safety like the remington but looks to be made of plastic. The 3 lug bolt looks to be very strong but when you cycle a round into the chamber you need to do it quick or firm because of you way the bolt face holds onto the bullet. You have to use a little pressure if you try to easy a bullet into the chamber. I figure it will get easier with use. I have only shot it like 50 times.
It has a 60 degree bolt throw and a detachable box magazine. The mag is made of plastic as well or something of the sort. I like the single stack magazine. It came with metal sling studs. Decent recoil pad. The stock is black plastic with grey grips. Looks better that the all black of other guns. IMO.
I am extremely pleased with the Venture. Unless something happens in the future with it I would say it is well worth the money I spent on in. I paid $442 for it including tax. I have less than $600 in it and a Nikon 3-9x40 Nikon Prostaff. And I have a gun that shoots well below 1 inch at 100 yards. It shoots just as good, if not better than my Remington 700 BDL SS DM chambered in 25-06.
