Hogan, I could not find a TC Venture last month. They have a recall for trigger sears and there are no rifles at retailers for the foreseeable future. I called the factory and they could not tell me when Ventures (the downmarket version of the Icon) will be available.

I just verily saw this thread my girl friends father has a Thompson Center Encore in 22-250 that I've shot a lot, at 20yrds I've had 2" groups on good days, as for in 308 I haven't shot one in the caliber but I wouldn't be surprised if you had 1" groups at 100yrds but that depends on your skill.

I'm pretty confident in the rifles ability, as we'll as mine. I've just went to my regular gun shop and heard the same thing about the ventures. I've read only one bad review about the icon but it was from some no name blogger. He disassembled the icon to inspect it. then shot it and claimed there was a bedding issue.
