That stick is shooting great, and with it and it seems like some other rounds recent, you have been having good luck w/retumbo. Thanks for the good posts

Re: Range Test Mcmillan EOL Outdoorsman

Thanks, I am having way to much fun playing with this thing. The really bad part is I have to give it back. It's like a great dream and then you wake up.

I bet your weather is better than mine. Are you going to try spring bear up there this year?
I missed this when originally posted, but the stock does not have a recoil reducer in it. The design, material and construction may make if feel like it does, but it does not.

LTLR,

Maybe if things go your way, they might let you keep it! Wishful thinking!

Re: Range Test Mcmillan EOL Outdoorsman

How is it comparing to the other guns that you are shooting along side this one?

Re: Range Test Mcmillan EOL Outdoorsman

LTLR,
man I'm glad I didn't miss this thread. It has been an amazing reading and pretty exiting.
You're right, it does take a special weapon that light to shoot that well, but it does also
take a special man behind the rig to complement it. I'm proud of you both, the shooter
and the Mcmillan EOL rifle.

Thank you! thank your for doing this. I for one I'm very thank full. I do realize all the work
time and money you have put into it. Thank You!

Is your wife still talking to you?

By now that great rifle is pretty much used and well used. Perhaps you can get a good deal
on it! Just saying...

Can you tell us a bit more about the recoil reducer? How much weight does it add? How does it change the recoil? Does it work better on magnum cartridges than say standard cartridges?

Thanks,

Scot E.
