TC Venture 270 wsm

I traded one of my axis 2 rifles for a TC Venture in 270WSM brand new.

I didn't realize that it had a 22 inch barrel until I got home....... I will rebarrel this at some point anyway, but honestly whats the point in a magnum cartridge with such a short barrel??

Any of you all have this rifle? How does the velocity suffer from the shorter barrel?

The WSM's are quite efficient and do fine in shorter barrels. Ruger offered one with a 16" barrel. Personally I think 22" is about right for the cartridge. Certainly no more than 24". It'll still be faster than a 270WCF with a 26" barrel.

I have one. It's faster than my 270 Win with a 26" barrel.
The chamber on MI e is tight. It will barely shoot factory loads and reloads done without a small base die are sticky, sticky, sticky. I should send it back to s&w for the third time, but I probably won't waste my time.

Reynolds357,

I got to working up a load for this today. The throat is very short. And the chamber is definitely tighter than my other 270 wsm. Will not chamber brass from my other rifle. Even partially resized. I did pick up new dies and a bag of brass just for this rifle though.

Can't wait to get to the range and see how it goes. Loaded up a few test loads with H-1000 and Magpro tonight

Congrats on the new rifle!
The Mossberg Patriot line is straight 22" regardless of caliber.
Even their 7mm Rem Mag.

I shoot Ramshot Magnum in mine. (Mainly because I have a lifetime supply of it I got for cheap.) It's about the same as MagPro. Shoots good.
