Mike,
Are the bodies hollowed out so they are not too heavy? Sides screwed together?
Some might want the extra weight, but it would be easy to fill a hollow cavity with weight if they want it, but harder to make them lighter.
The housing halves are not completely hollow. In order to bolt them together without distortion, there has to be some integrity. The molded parts are designed similarly so the material is rigid enough post molding. The integrity in a stamped steel magazine comes from the properties of the steel and the bends that give the material its outer shape,

MIghty Bites FTW! Love'em! There's something just hypnotic about clean tool paths. Looks more like a facing op than a pocket.

I am playing with safe cracking (freaking hard!) and whipped up a quick mount yesterday for an old lock. Went a little unconventional on the facing since it was just for me.

Anyways, keep the machining pics coming!

Well I ordered My Vudoo yesterday! Now what am I going to spend every free moment of my day obsessing over?! In all actuality where is the best place with the best price for Lapua Center-x? I have 1500 rounds of SK Rifle match and about the same of Eley Match but since center-x is the premier I would like to get some! Thanks for any info given or already received!!

Cheers!

Best price on Center-X (or any of the Eley / Lapua premium or midrange labels) is Good Shooting Inc. I have yet to find any vendor offer better prices, even on "sale," than this crew, and that factors in such bits as "free shipping," and you also get a choice of lots.

Cathy and James are good people. And in case you didnt know it, Cathy is one of the most incredible shooters I have ever known.

Well scope will be a Vortex PST Gen 2 5-25 FFP mil/mil with the new reticle. I am using a lifeline and getting it at an insane price! Until it arrives my Razor Gen 2 will hold its place. From what I understand medium rings are good for lever throw and clearance. New stick is a Ridgeback Black with gray 18" kukri.

Cheers!

So lemme get this straight, you'll replace the Gen 2 razor with the Gen 2 PST?

Why, if I may ask?


(I'm @ the mil pricing and you can't beat it, so eventually considering the razor to replace the Diamondback Tactical)

The Razor is on my 6.5 Creedmoor that I just had made for me and I have not put any rounds down it yet. So it is sitting on top not zeroed yet. I have a 100 yard range about 30 yards off my deck beside my house. In the spring it will include steel hung out to 380 yards. So I can easily shoot the Vudoo before I get to the Creedmoor before spring gets here.

Cheers!

Hello Everyone, I am a relatively new Vudoo owner, I have the Ridgeback with 18" Kukri Barrel and I also have the new MDT ACC chassis with a 22" Kukri Barrel. Just curious as to what glass everyone is running? I currently have Vortex Razor Gen 2's 4.5x27x56 and I am wondering if there are advantages to a NF ATACR?

Nice rifle. You will love it.

As to scope, if you can't do it with the Razor you won't be able to do it with the ATACR. That Razor will do all you need.

Same here ive bought from her on the phone several times, she talks like a nice lady that knows a lot about ammo, not like a super shooter.

Im about to order a Vudoo bore guide. It does not appear my .22 cal Tipton carbon fiber rod will work. What cleaning rod is everyone using for their Vudoo's? Adapter? Length?

If I remember right it will take anything under .187. At least I think that’s what my bore guide said. .17 cal carbon fiber rod is what I’ve been using with the adapter for a 22 jag. Somebody please correct me if I’m wrong.

To add to the cleaning rod discussion, I have a 17 - 20 cal. Montana extreme with 5-40 threads. Fits great, but the adapter that gets me to the 22 jag is 8-32. This will not fit through the insert in my Vudoo bore guide. I have to leave the insert out.
Can anyone tell me where I can get a 5-40 thread 22 jag that fits through the insert? Or, even a new rod and the matching jags? Or, is there a place where all this has been discussed already?

For rimfire cleaning in general I prefer a Dewey 20cal rod in a 22lr and I turn down the thread adapter to just over 0.200” so I can then attach the jag for the VFG cleaning felts. It does a great job for me. I use this with my VGW V-22 bore guide and the insert.

Got a bit of a bonus check from work that is burning a hole in my pocket.....

Looking hard at the Vudoo's. My 6.5 is in a Manners PRS1 stock but getting a stock from Manners seems tough.

There is a MPA Hybrid chases in the for sale section that I am pondering. Is it as easy as getting the barreled action, install a trigger, and drop it into the chassis? What am I not thinking about? Thanks!

You’ll be all set with the MPA with the adjustable mag release but we may actually have a PRS1 in the shop. I’ll take a look tomorrow when I sneak in to get a few things done and circle back to let you know.
