The legendary McMillan TAC-50 has seen combat around the world and is the preferred issue 50 caliber for many government and law enforcement agencies as a Long Range Sniper Rifle. The TAC-50’s strength is both as a long-range anti-materiel and an anti-personnel firearm where precision accuracy and high power are required at extreme ranges.
The TAC-50 is based on the McMillan 50 caliber action – the same action that dominates 50 caliber benchrest competition. A premium match grade barrel, tuned trigger, hand bedded McMillan fiberglass stock and meticulous benchrest gunsmithing contribute to the extreme accuracy for which the TAC-50 is known.
As an anti-materiel rifle, the TAC-50 can precisely disable enemy assets from long range for a relatively low cost. Various military armor-piercing, incendiary and explosive ammunition for the 50 BMG provides an inexpensive means of neutralizing lightly armored targets. For example, one well placed round in an engine block will stop a vehicle. The rifle is also effective against radar equipment, communications equipment, crew-served weapons, mechanical targets and similar targets. The 50 BMG will penetrate most commercial brick or concrete walls.
Due to its superior benchrest-level accuracy, the TAC-50 is seeing growing interest as an ultra-long range anti-personnel tactical rifle. Whereas the effective range of the 7.62 NATO (.308 Win) is generally assumed to be 1000 meters, the TAC-50 commonly engages targets beyond 2000 meters. At this range, the superior accuracy of the bolt action TAC-50 provides greater practical effectiveness than semi-automatic rifles. As an example, the Canadian military uses the TAC-50 as its primary Long Range Sniper Weapon due to its dual ability to handle both long-range precision, as well as anti-materiel roles. Rob Furlong of the Canadian Army used a TAC-50 to execute a confirmed 2430 meter (2657 yard) shot in Afghanistan, setting the world record for the longest successful tactical shot in combat.
Despite its power, the TAC-50 is surprisingly easy to shoot owing to the proprietary design of the McMillan muzzle brake and geometry of the stock.
The bolt action TAC-50 in 50 BMG is legal for civilians to own in all states in the U.S. except California. The TAC-50 is owned by collectors, competitors and sophisticated shooting enthusiasts. Numerous civilian matches for 50 caliber long range competition are held around the country throughout the year. Several websites and shooting organizations are dedicated to owning and shooting the 50 BMG.
