I put the TC Venture 7mm mag together and put a Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12 x 40 AO scope on it. After I had it all setup and bore sighted I took it to the gun club to sight it in. Man what a shooter. The TC Venture didn't punish me because I purchased a 7mm mag. The recoil was very acceptable. The reason I purchased it was because all the research I had done indicated that it was a lot of rifle for the money and I am telling you that it shot superbly.It shot a MOA group at 100 yds and I didn't even try to beat that. The TC Venture has a 5R rifling, match grade crown and the bolt has a 60 degree lift, gives you lots of room under the scope when working the action. The cost of the TC Venture was less than $400 after factory rebate and I don't know where I could have purchased a better firearm that performs like this one for that kind of money. I would buy another one in a heart beat!!
