In our January ELR22 match we shot out to 550 yards. I could get there between dialing and reticle. By the time we get to our next ELR22 match I want to be capable of getting to 600 yards. After 400 yards everything becomes extremely critical so I want to do as much as possible on the turrets.How far youre shooting???
Both bartlein and their ace barrels are single point cut barrels. Single point cutting is the process used to creat rifiling in the bore of the barrel. One single point cutter cuts all the rifling one pass at a time.Just saw a really nice Vudoo on Facebook. The owner mentioned that it had a 5 groove Bartlein barrel, and Vudoo talks about their barrels being single-point-cut barrels. So, I don't understand what this means. Can you have a 5 groove barrel that is single-point-cut.?What exactly does single-point-cut mean, and what would be the alternative. Is one supposed to better for accuracy?
Yep. With the 60 MOA rail, and the NF 7-35, we're dialing all the way out to the 550 yards+.In our January ELR22 match we shot out to 550 yards. I could get there between dialing and reticle.

Button rifled barrels are not cut by the button. They are deformed by the button. There is data proving a cut rifle barrel will last marginally longer, but one is not better than the other by design with respect to accuracy.As opposed to a button that cuts them all at once. Just 2 different ways to skin a cat. One isn't NECESSARILY better than the other, though there seems to be a lot of success with cut-rifled barrels these days.
I know nothing about hammer forged. But yes, it’s interesting. I have several button rifle barrels (benchmark) and all from them shoot amazing. My cut ace barrel from vudoo also shoots amazing. It’s really about the machines and quality control how well they turn out.Huh, learn something new everyday, thanks NW. It's kind of like it's the middle ground between cut-rifled & hammer forged.
I zero at 25yd. My DOPE is just about the same at 50yd. Not sure how much is left on the bottom. I set the zero stop just a little under, set and walked away.Are you using a 50 yard zero? If so, how much travel do you have left on the turrets before bottoming out?
I recommend the book First Freedom. It describes all the early American gun makers. Real leaders in the industrial revolution. Also explains the truth about our right to bear arms.When you look at the machines they use, and how huge they are, and you know the power behind them, it is amazing to think of the first guys who rifled a barrel, without all those machines.
I'll use the Burris Signature adjustable rings so I can get almost everything in elevation. Currently on my AMG I have .5mil under and 27mil above. When I mount the new Athlon Ares ETR I'll set it uptake same way except with the 60moa base. I only want/need .3 to .5 under and I'll use a 50yd zero. 25y will be about the same as 50y but 35y is 2 to 3 clicks below zero.I zero at 25yd. My DOPE is just about the same at 50yd.

For majority of people shooting 25 - 150 yards. 20 MOA Rail is perfectly fine. With good optics you can easily dial out to about 300 yards.Doesn't Vudoo recommend the 20 MOA? Perhaps that is just to get you out to a certain distance (I seem to recall 350) with most scopes. Are folks using the 40 and 60 MOA rails to go out further, or is there some other reason?
What pistol is that? im looking for a 22lr target pistol....I picked up my Vudoo Thursday & competed today (Saturday) in my local NRL22 match. It has an 18” Kukri Ace barrel, Calvin Elite trigger, Midas Tac 4-16 & Grayboe Ridgeback stock. I placed 4th out of 19 shooters & never came in below 9th previously (with an incostitent FVSR). Shooting SK rifle match, this thing is just consistent & so easy to get on target. I cleaned all prone stages & need to work on my elevated positional shooting; kneeling, sitting & off obstacles.

I am beyond happy with my new Vudoo! Thank you to everyone at VGW for an outstanding rifle.
winniethepooh is correct. It is a Volquartsen Scorpion with 4.5" barrel, 1911 grip frame and the new compensator. It is the nicest .22 pistol I have ever shot and it's fantastic. I have a Trijicon RM09 on top with 1 MOA dot to hit smaller targets with it. I run it suppressed 95% of the time and it never chokes or has issues.What pistol is that? im looking for a 22lr target pistol....
I never had any ejecting problems with any ammo. CCI SV is definitley tighter. When clean, it didn’t have any problems. Dirty, I had problems closing the bolt on it, but never ejecting. That being said, I only ever used it when I was playing around and trying different things when I didn’t need to squeeze out the best accuracy. No SK ammo ever had a problem at all. Considering SK std isn’t much more expensive, if I didn’t already have a ton of CCI SV, I would have used the SK for those situations.Somewhere (either here or the Facebook page) somebody was talking about some ammo not ejecting properly. CCI SV comes to mind, but I can't remember exactly. Has anybody had this problem. I know the Vudoo has a match chamber. Does that not work well with non-match ammo?
Here's a link. They have good prices, fast shipping and you can choose from different lots that are available at the time.I have been buying a lot of CCI SV, mainly because I have a Smith & Wesson model 41 that is supposed to be designed to use that exact ammo. Obviously, if you buy better ammo, it will shoot more accurately, but I found great deals on it, and bought quite a bit. I'll have to look around for better deals on SK and Eley. Can anybody suggest a good place to find good prices on those (and I know that may be looking for a needle in a haystack)?
Target Sports USA usually has good prices on SK and some types of Eley. If you order by the case, they have free shipping. Or you can opt for their 'Prime membership' for $95 and get free shipping on all orders and discounts on ammo. I'm mulling over the Prime to see if it would be worth the cost.I'll have to look around for better deals on SK and Eley. Can anybody suggest a good place to find good prices on those...
Here's something even crazier... How'd they make the first lathe... I mean wouldn't you need a lathe to make a lathe?!
no, actually you don’t need a lathe to make a lathe. Somewhere in my horde of books is a small book giving instructions on how to biuld a small lathe. The principles would apply to a larger one. There are also books on the first machine tool builders which give info. Those guys were really smart.Here's something even crazier... How'd they make the first lathe...
