    Anyone ever watch the hunting show "Extreme Outer Limits?" The guy on there uses what they call the EOL line of Mcmillan Rifles. Has anyone purchased one of these rifles or any knowledge of them. They have information on their website, however, looking for a personal perspective!

    I've watched the show. The host shoots a 338 lapua a lot. But I've also noticed the gun changes throughout the show. Sometimes it looks like a Stiller Predator action sometimes more like a Remington/McMillian clone.

    Too many ads and commerials. The quick tips section is pretty brief. I like Long Range Pursuit a lot better.

    Don't know anything about the gun though sorry.

    The 338 lapua he shoots is a stiller predator.The 7 rum is a Borden Timberline action. There rifles where build buy McWhorter.

    He is pushing the McMillan rifles but he and his wife are shooting a McWhorter Rifle on every episode.

    !0-4 - I noticed when they say what he is using, it usually says .338 LM (custom)! Cool!

    I am curious to know how those McMilian rifles shoot from the factory, the EOL line? On the Extreme Outer Limits website, they are asking $5500 or something like! Are they worth it?

    McWhorters have built off the Mcmillan actions. The actions are not terribly impressive and are overpriced. The Mcmillans look like turds next the the McWhorters to me.

    The EOL line of Rifles looks like Mcmillan's version of a Remington SPS. :D

    Hello guys, I just want to clear up the questions about the rifles used on Extreme Outer Limits show. Yes, McMillan is the presenting sponsor, and you guys are sharp, the rifles used in the first season are not McMillans. They were built by McWhorters and obviously are very fine rifles, to be able to do what Bob has done with them shows how ell they are made. Next season will feature McMillan rifles. I can't really comment on the above comment, I have not heard that from the guys at McWhorters.

    The EOL line of rifles are different from our standard rifles in that with the exception of the .338 Lapua all has custom chambers made specifically to shoot Berger bullets. The chamber reamers were designed so we could seat the bullets on the lands and still get them to feed from our magazines and eject a loaded round. We are using 7, 300, 30-378 all labeled EOL to distinguish them from the standard sammi spec reamers used on the Ultras and the Weatherby mag.

    For how they shoot, I have always been proud of the rifles we build, but Bob has been able to get these rifles to do things I didn't think was possible. He's a dedicated shooter and hunter and has a real Mack for tuning ammo to a rifle. We were extremely happy to find yesterday that the ammo he developed for the first 7mm EOL mag short exactly the same in the second rifle. Being able to develop a load that will shoot equally as accurately in each rifle sold is a great bonus.

    Just one last thing, McWhorters has been a good customer of McMillan and when we were considering joining EOL we called them and discussed it. I don't get involved in customers or competitors business so I can't say why the change was made to McMillan, but I will tell you it had nothing to do with the quality of the rifles provided by McWhorters.

    ya it was. i must admit i was a little intimidated when i found out they were gonna be there, but after getting a chance to talk to them i was at ease .they were very nice, and Bob would sit there and answer all my questions and show us different things about the equipment and when i didnt understand he would take the time to patiently go over it again so i could understand,they are a real stand up couple and even their camera guy is awesome. we all had a great time hanging out and hunting. Oh and it is all real when they get an animal they go bone it out and pack it back themselves in miles of high country no one is there to help them, they are the real deal.
