Taking three shots in freezing temperatures and high winds with the Venture Compact
Boulder City, Nevada - This year's Media Day at the Range had it's ups and downs. A down for some was the 30 degree weather. But battling back in the up category were all the wonderful pistols, shotguns and rifles there just waiting to be fired. One of the first ones we sat down with was the Thompson Center Venture Compact bolt action rifle.
"We shortened the length of pull on our regular venture so it now has a twenty inch barrel," said the Thompson Center rep. "There are buttstock inserts so the rifle can grow with a junior shooter. This rifle comes in a number of calibers (from 22-250 to 7mm-08) but today you'll be shooting it in a .308."
Despite the high winds and finger trembling conditions, we were able to find steel on all three shots on distances up to 100 yards. It has to make you think — if the Venture Compact can perform that well under those conditions, just think what it'll be able to do on a sunny day.
