    Just recieved my new McMillan 338 Lapua EOL LRH rifle and attended the 2 day class in Phoenix put on by McMillan when you purchase one of there rifles. This was the best thing that could happen for me and learn how to use the SYSTEM setup. Bob Beck with Extreme Outer Limits and several Ex Military snipers were the instructors. We learned about the rifle and how to use the scope (Nightforse NXS 5.5-22x56 with level and ADI). We (16 people) shot medal targets from 350 + yards to 1830 Yards (longest target). It was a lot of one on one instructor help and was fantastic. I highly recommend this class and gun if you are thinking about it.

    They Make a fine Rifle. I'd love to have a TAC 50. Ill have to settle for my "little" 338 Edge once it's finished.

    Congrats on the awesome rifle and the class. I saw on Facebook Bob Beck's post about the successful class. I bet that was a lot of fun and a great learning environment.
    You can call me really jealous.
    Keep us posted with some good pictures on what it lays down this season!

    You will like the killing performance of the 300 gr Berger's. They make kind of a big hole in antelope, but dead is dead.
