Wife has one in 243. She took 3 deer in Oklahoma with it this season. 2 doe at about 45-50 yards and one buck at 125 yards. I sighted it in for her and it was a smooth shooting gun, accurate, which surprised me for a budget gun. 1 inch grouping at 100 yards. We bought it on sale for $275 and T/C had a $75 rebate, so for a $200 gun I didn't expect much. She loves it and who knows maybe we just got the one in a thousand jewel. I haven't spoken with anyone else who owns one, so I'm going off only our experience with the 243.

I have one in 6.5 creedmoor and run a suppressor on it. I took it out to 550 yards this past weekend with no problems. I am getting a 1 inch grouping at 100 yards.

I looked at one and could see why they’re $200. If that works for you, charge on. They do shoot pretty well.

I own one. It's a good accurate gun. It's a budget rifle. If you want more than that, you will pay accordingly.

I dont own one but was looking into them quite a bit before I found a Savage at a similar price. The people I spoke to that own them seem to like them quite a bit, the only complaint I ever heard was about the cheap synthetic stock. Hopefully Bodys will have something to fix that on the market in the near future. I would definitely buy one in a heartbeat if I needed an affordable hunting rifle. That $200 price point is hard to beat.

I don't have a Compass but I have a Venture and I thought the same thing when I bought it. Unfortunately, after I got it I learned the trigger guard is molded into the stock. The Compass is the same and I suspect that alone will keep most companies from making aftermarket stocks for them. I have my fingers crossed hoping Bell & Carlson will make a Medalist stock for the Venture.

I ordered one for a buddy and he likes it okay but when you compare it to the Ruger American, most everyone would pick the American. Savage Axis is also more popular than the TC in the lower priced rifles.
Adios,
Gary

i bought the venture in 243 for my grandsons back in november, it looks cheap, feels cheap, the bolt is rough as a cobb, but it will put factory 100gr in a dime size group all day long. i doubt the deer will complain about the workmanship of this rifle.
