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.

    What, no msrp? Oh yeah if you have to ask you can’t afford it. Paying for a name ( a good one) a 27″ bbl, and a chamber size you could almost fit a moped in…

  2. avatarNick says:

    What do you do with a $2000+ bolt action rifle? I would be afraid to use it or take it out of the vacu-chamber.

  3. avatarMatt in FL says:

    I’m not man enough for that rifle.

  4. avatarkb says:

    If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

  5. avatarDyspeptic Gunsmith says:

    Hmmm. Just under $7K for any of these rifles, without glass. By the time you hang a piece of high(er) end glass on it, you’ll be up to about $9K, without sales tax, etc.

    I have no idea who would use any of these for hunting. Their barrels are too long, they have muzzle brakes on them, and they look… goofy.

    For that amount of money, a man should be able to buy a hunting rifle that doesn’t look goofy.

    • avatarHerb says:

      Hmm…long barrel with muzzle brake, goofy looking, extreme range.

      Sounds like a “long range sniper weapon” & we of the ruling classes can’t let the lowly proles own something like that. No joke, some UN bureaucrat actually says that about any scope sighted rifle in a military caliber.

      • avatarDyspeptic Gunsmith says:

        If people want to own long range rifles, God bless them.

        But a true “long range weapon” wouldn’t try to be this light.

        There’s a danger in trying to make a duckbill platypus that can fly: It will look silly and it won’t fly well. That’s what is going on here.

        And for $6K, you could build a much better long range rifle than this. It would have a heavier barrel, heavier stock, etc.

        For $6K, you could own a custom rifle made for hunting that would shoot very well out to 500 to 600 yards.

        The problem with this rifle is that it is trying to combine two divergent rifle design criteria into the same package. People who think that they’re going to use one of these rifles (or just about any other rifle) take competent shots at 1,000 yards on big game are engaging in mental masturbation.

  6. avatarAccur81 says:

    I’m feeling the desire creep up for a .300 Mag of some sort. I wonder how these stack up to the GunWerks rifles that TTAG has already tested.

    • avatarjwm says:

      Accur81, I can testify that the .300 win mag in a Browning auto rifle is about one of the sweetest handling and shooting combos I’ve had the pleasure of. Enough power and range for anything in the lower 48 with decent accuracy and decent portability.

  7. avatarMatt says:

    If you can’t see the animal without glass it’s not hunting it’s target practice with live animals. Not saying we shouldn’t have such rifles, I just believe that it’s unethical to “hunt” like that.

  8. avatarAharon says:

    from their website:

    EOL MOUNTAIN EXTREME ALPINE with hard case lists for $6,775 and that is without scopes, etc. “The McMillan Hunting Knife and Caping Knife combo set sells for $795.00″

    Do the prices include the services of first-class airfare, a professional hunting guide, gourmet game chef, and a college age coed masseuse?

  9. avatarBob H says:

    At this link they have apparently changed the spelling of Mountain from that shown in the above pic. http://mcmillanusa.com/mcmillan-rifles-mountain-extreme.php Copyright and/or Trademark issues? Or is it a plot by the UN to steal our guns?
