First Look: Browning McMillan Pro & Long Range Rifles

posted on February 9, 2021

Browning is introducing the McMillan Pro and McMillan Pro Long Range, two new X-Bolt rifles that are built for hunters and long-distance shooters in mind. These new rifles are geared toward shooters who demand more from their equipment and know the difference that quality components make when it’s time to make a critical shot.

The foundation for both rifles is the exceptional carbon fiber McMillan Game Scout stock. This stock features a medium sized fore-end, a straight comb and a comfortable vertical pistol grip with thumb shelf. Aluminum pillars ensure a stable, solid mount, and the versatile Sonoran Carbon Ambush camouflage adds concealment from sharp eyes.

The Pro includes a sporter contour barrel and the Pro Long Range is fitted with a 26-inch heavy sporter contour barrel that is threaded 5/8x24. Both rifles include the innovative new Browning Recoil Hawg muzzle brake that significantly reduces felt recoil, and a thread protector is included if you wish to attach a suppressor or another muzzle device. A durable Cerakote Carbon Gray finish is applied to the barreled action of both rifles, and a Picatinny bipod rail on the fore-end is also included.


  • McMillan Game Scout carbon fiber stock with Sonoran Carbon Ambush finish
  • Cerakote Carbon Gray finish on barreled action
  • Pro: Skip fluted sporter contour barrel is threaded and supplied
  • Pro Long Range: 26-inch skip fluted sporter contour barrel is threaded 5/8x24

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
