Anyone in North Texas or Southern Oklahoma that has a Vudoo and wouldn’t mind letting me look at it?

I am wanting to order on but would like to check one out before I commit so much money to a rimfire.

If so PM me.
Give Norman at Lead Heads, LLC in Saginaw a call. 682-224-5531

He has his Vudoo at his shop and placed an order for several barreled actions that are supposed to arrive in June (one of 'em is MINE). Not sure if he has any unspoken for. He is also an MPA dealer with a few chassis in stock.

This is his rifle at 50 on the initial outing. 5 in the group and then singles...

Thanks Mike. I fought it as I've been enjoying my jelrod conversion. But once Norman got his in and started whooping my ass, I had to do it.

What is the magazine availability situation?

The conversions are awesome, still shoot mine, but the V-22 is up a few levels. We keep thousands of magazines on-hand, all welding, assembly and QC is in-house....just let me know how many you'd like and how quickly you need them, the rest is really easy.

This thread has pushed me to the edge. I'm going to finally get a Vudoo ordered but am trying to decide on the barrel and trigger. I saw the thread on triggers, but am curious which barrels you guys are using? The groups posted are all fantastic, so I'm curious if the performance has been equal between all of the options being offered?

I went with the Ace barrel and couldn't be happier. I am sure you won't go wrong with Ace or Bartlien. They have an explanation on their Facebook page that explains barrel choices pretty well. I went with the Calvin Elite Custom and absolutely love it.

When I ordered mine I don't recall having a barrel choice, but I put a Timney Calvin elite in it, just like my Mausingfield and have been real happy with it

Awesome shooting!! Vudoo Rifles are going to change competition and make a lot of Annie owners nervous when they line up next to one. These rifles are dead serious competitors!

Rob, first off "congrats!"

Second, any issues with the Razor focusing down? Trying to work out a scope for mine when it gets here.

I may just move the Khales from the Desert Tech as I know that will adjust for parallax down to 25 yards and put a S&B on that, but other options actually in use are always good to hear about.

Thanks. No issues down to 30 yards we shot in the match with the 4.5-27x Razor. The 3-18 and AMG 6-24 both go down to 25 yards but dropping power can allow all to work closer. Had done with with other optics in matches over the years having to shoot down to 11 feet.

Last week the wife and I took a drive up to St. George to Vudoo Gunworks. We spent about an hour with Paul and Jill looking at their facility and a bunch of different options for a new rifle. Paul was the consummate professional Smithy. He answered all of my question, made a few suggestions and brought out multiple barreled actions and chassis/stocks.

By the time we were finished I had not only decided to order a rifle but I was very comfortable in what I was ordering. It was a very comfortable and professional process. The only downside is that by the time we were done my wife had stolen this rifle from me so I'll probably be ordering another one a week or so after this one comes in. On the other hand once she shoots her's there won't be any question about ordering mine.

Thanks Paul and Jill for your time and effort in getting us into the right rifle.

I checked my AMG at 25 yds ... it's pretty close, but still has some parallax. 24x is too much at 25 yds anyway.

Unless shooting benchrest at that 25 yard range even a small amount of parallax won't move bullet strike much if at all. Usually parallax will throw you off maybe a 1/2 MOA if a good way off and at 25 yards that's about .13" max movement with a lot of parallax. And like you said at 25 yards you will most likely be dialed back anyways.

Not the best day to be at the range yesterday, rain and high winds, but I put just over 100 rounds through the new PROOF Research barrel. The first 20 rounds of Center X at 50 are pictured here inside a one inch square. The slight vertical stringing is from the target board rocking back and forth in the wind.





All-in-all, I'm really pleased with the results and I typically see groups tighten with another 100 or so rounds. The guys in St George are seeing the same results in their test platforms. These barrels will be awesome shooters.

It's 18" and I don't have an actual weight of the barrel, but it's our KUKRI contour if you have something to compare it to. I'll weigh a Vudoo barrel today that I've not torqued to a receiver yet, should be about the same.

The PROOF barrels are still in testing, we just have a few protos on-hand.

@RAVAGE88

Any suggestions on which suppressor/s seem to hold the best accuracy with the 16.5 kukri barrels?
My Liberty Kodiak opens groups up a little,not much. But it may tighten groups up on another. I am sure this is the case with any suppressor and any rifle. Shooting groups, I would take the supressor off, shooting matches NRL or PRS style, suppressor on.

Range trip to Woody’s in New Hill NC over the weekend and my new Vudoo exceeded expectations on steel in the wind 100, 200,300 yds consistently (4” to 8” plates).

The best was with my NX 5.5-22 set to 59.5 MOA from 100 yd zero a 4 MOA hold scored me 4 of 7 on a 10” plate . Scope was maxed out so for 400 yds 30 vs 25 rail would have eliminated holdover. The ammo was SK Standard.

I could not be happier with the Vudoo in my JAE 700. Top shelf kit from top shelf manufacturers who also have the best in the industry customer service/Communicatons

I'll look at mine tonight, but I wouldn't think they would want to abrasive blast the interior sliding surfaces of the action to get the Cerakote to stick better.
