On the other hand, I just got back from a hunt in Nebraska where I used a T/C Venture in .30/06 topped with a Nikon ProStaff 5 3.5-14x40 scope with BDC reticle. [As an aside, this is the second time I've tested the Venture; the other was on the range with David E. Petzal, and the gun turned in an average three-shot group of .816 inch. Here again, the rifle proved exceptionally accurate. I had to fight with the magazine a bit, and the trigger has a little creep, but all in all the Venture is one heck of bargain for around $500.] Anyway, after flopping a buck and a doe at 250 yards, hitting both where I aimed, I have to admit that I'm warming up to that mess in the middle of a range-compensating scope.
