Thompson/Center Compass rifles @ cabelas

Hey guys, Cabelas has "Thompson/Center Compass Bolt-Action Rifles" in like most calibers, threaded muzzle, final price $249.99 after rebates and stuff. Looks like it comes with scope bases.... I am tempted because I have wanted a 243 gun for a while... how good are their rifles?

I know 4 who have bought them. their guarantee of 1 moa has so far, delivered.

the exception is ammo. It requires precision ammo

For a budget rifle that will be dragged through the woods, it appears to perform very well so far. I can't say that many rounds have been put thru these rifles but initial impressions are positive. Of those I know of, various calibers have been purchased and all have performed.

I have a Venture in .270 Win .... It is nothing short of amazing. Dialed in a load really easily. It hits well under 1 moa, more like about a half (and I'm not one to tweak loads to endless perfection). Pretty sure the Compass has the same barrel. Really good barrels. I plan to buy another Venture.

Just bought a compass last Tuesday it the Finn feather fur . With tax and after rebate it will cost around 225 . I got a 308 have not scoped it yet though. Not a big fan of the safety but for the price I will deal with it

I had a Venture , that was stupid accurate with the first handload I tried in it 7mm-08 , 130 Gr. Speer BT . I believe the Compass has the same 5-R rifling as the venture .

Mine is a fantastically accurate gun, and when you consider the price it is probably the best bargain to be had in the entire gun world right now.
