Introduces the New Long Range Hunting Rifle
Phoenix, AZ - McMillan Group International announces the expansion of its hunting line with the introduction of McMillan Long Range Hunting Rifle (LRH). The new rifle is designed for precision long-range shooting.
The LRH rifle is built to custom, benchrest tolerances and features the McMillan G30 custom long or short action. The rifle is chambered in 308 Winchester, 300 Winchester Magnum and 338 Lapua Magnum with stainless steel match-grade barrels machined to medium-heavy contour. Barrel threads and the chamber are cut to critical tolerances and fit by hand. The barrel axis is perfectly in line with the bolt axis. The bolt face and action face are precisely perpendicular to the barrel axis. The action is pillar-bedded into the stock, and the barrel is free floated. Barrel lengths offered are 24 inches, 26 inches and 27 inches, depending on the caliber.
The ergonomic McMillan A-3 fiberglass stock comes standard and features a fixed cheekpiece and recoil pad. The A-3 stock is designed for long-range shooting.
Other standard features include machined one-piece steel-hinged floorplate that provides easy unloading and a tuned three-pound trigger. Accessories are available, including scope, bipod, cleaning equipment, and other options.
Long-range hunting is the art of delivering benchrest accuracy at extreme distances. Once the domain of a few international long-range competitive events, now the big game trophy hunter is asking for equipment that can deliver performance at extreme distances. According to Kelly McMillan, president of McMillan Group International, "The McMillan Long Range Hunting Rifle delivers superior performance and reliability that is important on a successful long-range hunt."
