I've read a few reviews on the TC Venture and can tell you that they have all been very positive. I doubt that you are going to find much wrong with the Venture or the Ruger, considering the cost.
The Ruger American has been spoken highly of, as well. I handled one at the local outdoors store and I thought it was a nice rifle. Between the two rifles, the Venture would be my pick, but the Ruger isn't junk.
I really liked the .280 Rem. the Venture offers.

Here's a review for the Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 (I recently bought one in 7mm-08). It's awesome. http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/...guard-series-2
