And it can shoot better than that. Most of it is my trigger control and the wind. It’s the perfect trainer.That right there is what will justify and compensate for the cost of this rifle. I like it a lot.
ive had to eat a little crow around my parts....I kept saying "ID NEVER PAY THAT MUCH FOR A 22" as i was dumping mad money into a CZ...mine will be here in a few months and the lijia barreled CZ is out.And it can shoot better than that. Most of it is my trigger control and the wind. It’s the perfect trainer.
I was a bit apprehensive as I got rid of a custom centerfire to make room for this purchase. It took all of about the 3 first shots to realize this was something different.
Congratulations, you're gonna love it!!Well thanks for sucking me in with the rest of you! I have been watching these threads since they started and telling myself I don’t need all that, but no...
You all have to keep getting on here talking about how this is the most fun rifle you have ever shot, and best purchase you have ever made. And some of you have SWEET rifles! I could ignore it when I thought I could get the same groups for a third of the price. But that just wasn’t good enough. You all have convinced me that it isn’t even about the groups, it is about fun. Well, I want to have more fun, too!
I called a week ago to ask a few questions about installing it in my own chassis like many of you and they even offered to have me send it in and they would install it. Great conversation and I was going to call them back to order.
While looking at some rings on Mike Highs webpage, I found that they carry Vudoo barreled-actions, so I double checked to see what they had in stock. Turns out they have several in stock of what I want and it is sitting right in front of him. Order made and I will be receiving it by the end of the week!
Mike at Mile High was super helpful when discussing trigger options and stuff. Happy I get to support a couple forums supporters at one time.
I know it doesn’t count without pictures, so assuming no delays, I should have some pics up by the weekend!
This is mine with an AMG. Mount is a 1.18” spuhr.Finally got some glass on the way for my Ridgeback, so hopefully one day next week Ill get get it sighted in.
What height rings should I use for a 50mm objective? I'm have a 20 MOA base on it right now, but go a little higher at some point .
I like a lower mount, but don't use anything lower than 24 mm with a Vortex AMG. I started with the 22 mm ARC M10 rings (20 MOA rail) and the bolt handle hit the magnification adjusting ring.What height rings should I use for a 50mm objective?

Man that's great for 50 with gust to 12mph!Did an ARA match this weekend, great improvement for me using the vudoo in a grayboe stock. Target range 50 yards, score 1750 with 11x, winds 8-9 o clock gusting 3-12 MPH, Lapua Center-X average 1110 fps with 7.8 std deviation, 80 f degrees rising to 86 with 30.11 hg. This target was a new high for me as my best previous high score was a 1470. ARA bulls are 1/2" X ring , 1" total diameter and worst case scoring is used (if it breaks the line you score lower). One guy shot a 2200 on his first card of 5, but none of his subsequent scores broke 1900 when the wind picked up, so I feel pretty good about this target as it was #5 of 5.
No it wont.the arc 24mm is .94" i had this ring on SB even big ocular TT im using .915" iota rings and knob plenty of room when ejecting..you do realize that vudoo22 has 60°bolt throw right?I'm using ARC 24mm rings with a Vortex AMG. The bolt handle will hit the Vortex scope if you go any lower.
I guess i should believe the guy who made the action eh?(paul parrot) the concept was adopted from 40x but internal is diff.bjay, where did you get the idea that the V-22 has a 60* bolt throw? Look at your bolt while you open and close it - that point where the root of the bolt handle is machined most certainly moves through 90* when the bolt is opened or closed, just like the 40X or XB actions the V-22 is based on. If an action has three lugs arranged every 120* around the bolt nose or body, then you'll have a 60* bolt throw. When you've got two lugs 180* apart, you're going to have 90* bolt throw.
