T/C Venture

As some of you know I am looking for a .243 for my duaghter for next year. I posted asking for opinions on the Savage Axis line and was thankful for the insight that you provided.

Now I'm goign to ask about the T/C Venture in .243.
Anyone have one and would like to share opinions or suggestions? I'm also considering the Ruger American in .243.

Thanks!

Re: T/C Venture

I would take the Venture over the Axis any day. I own both (4 Ventures and 1 Axis). The Ventures and Axis I own are all very accurate but the Venture just feels a lot better. The axis feel really cheap. In the recent Grice's sales flyer, they have youth model Ventures available. I know they have them in 7mm08 and I'm sure they have them in 243. I will probably be picking up a 7mm08 youth for my daughter after Christmas.

this is true, but does that make the T/C better because it costs more? Anyone else have an opionion on the T/C?

thanks!

Re: T/C Venture

I own a venture and do not have one bad thing to say about it.

Depending on the age and size of your daughter, take a look at the Mossberg super bantam rifles. I bought one for my 7 year old daughter and it is a tack driver with Hornady American Whitetail ammo. Hers is 7mm-08 and she is very accurate with it.

Re: T/C Venture

I own a venture for my varmint rifle and I love it decent accuracy out of the box about three quarters of an inch at a hundred yards I think my hand loads will get it better than thatall in all it was a great gun for the money very solid feeling and points well it's not too heavy the trigger isn't bad mine has very little creep and brakes very cleanly

Re: T/C Venture

At one time I would say hands down T/C quality was second to none and I do like the Venture rifles.But since the [email protected] takeover the Co.has gone down the tubes.

Re: T/C Venture

My oldest Son has one in .243. It will shoot side by side with My Tikka, also in .243. Has a nice feel to it. Mahoning Milling, in Punsutawney, has them on sale for $379.99.
