McMillan: A Personal Statement

August 29th 2018

McMillan: A Personal Statement By: Mason Powell I shot my first .50 caliber rifle in 2006. My introduction was personal, my father started loading 50 BMG as a hobby when he realized there was a lack of high-quality, precision ammunition on the market. Soon, his hobby developed into Thunder Ammo, and through this we were…


Pillar Bedding : Part Two

November 2nd 2017

When pillar bedding gained acceptance, there wasn’t much argument about how to do it right. It seemed almost everyone in the competitive arena used pretty much the same technique.

Pillar Bedding : Part One

September 13th 2017

McMillan Fiberglass Stocks (MFS) began by making benchrest stocks for competition shooters.  We have always been heavily involved in all types of shooting sports and I would wager that there isn’t another company of our size that returns more money to the shooting sports by way of donations and sponsorship.  We routinely send gift certificates,…

McCubed: Third generation of McMillan (Mc3)

May 11th 2017

Third venture into game changing technology.  Polymer stocks. Some of you may have already heard about McCubed, a new division of McMillan dedicated to designing and developing the finest polymer stock on the market today.  It probably shouldn’t be new since I told my father back in 1992 that I believed that McMillan should be…


Should You Bed Your New McMillan Stock?
