New from McMillan: EOL Mountain Extreme Line Ultra-Long Range Hunting Cartridges and Rifles

McMillan Rifles EOL Rifle underneath a very large and expensive Nightforce scope

Long range hunting requires patience, perseverance, marksmanship and judgement. And a damn good gun. McMillan Group International makes rifles that meet that standard, and then some. But you don’t get to be a Big Mac by resting on your french fries. Capitalizing on their co-branding with the Sportsman Channel’s Extreme Outer Limits, McMillan have developed a new cartridge and rifle series to take out our four-legged friends from the Kingdom of Far, Far Away: the EOL Mag cartridge and the EOL Mountain Extreme Rifles. At the risk of pushing the boundaries of acceptably obscure references, McMillan don’t just control the horizontal, they control the vertical. In other words, the system is designed to minimize bullet drop; which sounds like a medical condition that could be cured by a drug advertised on TV with a silver-haired guy driving a 1968 Shelby Cobra GT 500-KR. But isn’t. What it is is . . .

The EOL Mag series utilizes a standard Ultra Mag parent case, but with very long, high-VLD bullets that are seated out longer than usual to free up additional powder capacity inside the case. The result is higher velocity and less bullet drop at extreme ranges.

McMillan’s EOL Mountain Extreme rifles feature a McMillan G30 Long Action, ejection ports and magazine boxes that can accommodate .338 Lapua and other similar length cartridges. Throats are specifically cut for the EOL Mag cartridge series. EOL Mountain Extreme rifles will deliver extreme performance with EOL Mag ammunition, but can also fire factory Remington Ultra Mag ammunition when desired.

Better than Remington? Huh. That cartridge isn’t known for its ballistic ED, if you know what I mean. As for the guns themselves . . .

The EOL Mountain Extreme Yukon features a McMillan Outdoorsman stock with a Monte Carlo cheekpiece for scope use. The stock geometry tames the recoil of large magnum cartridges. McMillan’s EDGE graphite technology is used in the stock to save weight. A long 27” barrel maximizes velocity at long range. Barrels are premium, hand-lapped match grade for superior accuracy. Barrel fluting preserves stiffness of the heavy contour barrel, but saves weight and facilitates cooling.

McMillanistas who want their cohorts to know they’ve got “that” gun will be glad to hear that the EOL series boasts a “unique nickel plated bolt shroud, bolt stop and muzzle brake.” It comes in three flavors: EOL Mountain Extreme Yukon™, EOL Mountain Extreme Alpine™ and EOL Mountain Extreme Denali (which lost its ™ somewhere in the lawyer’s office). Pic and specs below.

And one more thing, Nick. “The EOL Mountain Extreme Denali adjustable A3-5 tactical stock caters to hunters who prefer tactical features in a firearm. The adjustable cheekpiece positions the head optimally for scope use in any shooting situation. The vertical pistol grip is suited for comfort during long shooting sessions.”

But it’s not banned because it’s not an assault rifle. See how silly that whole AWb thing is, really? Anyway, get ‘em while they’re hot.
