Ok...we’ll I’ll try to get us back on topic.

anyone get their vudoo ina mpa matrix chassis?
I ordered mine through vudoo as a complete build but was told I only get one grip. Mpa says you get 2 grips and a thumb rest. Should I just order the barreled action and trigger and go direct through MPA for the chassis or do you suppose vudoo was mistaken and get back to me?
This would be a question for Greg or Paul, I'm not back in St George until the end of October.

Anyone get their vudoo recently and care to share their order date? I’m starting to get excited.

Ordered May 27th. received email August 10th. it was on the way. May have taken a little longer as I had a special paint order for the chassis. Interestingly I got the shipper notice before Vudoo.

    I've been working with plugrusa.com on a safety flag that's finally done. I ran it during the NRL22 Nationals and have been running it since. It's magnetic and will attach to the front of the breach and then has a bungee to keep the bolt held.

    You can get them here - http://www.plugrusa.com/shop/chamber-flag-for-22lr-bolt-action/

    I don’t think I will have to wait much longer. Just got a message from Jill asking if they could sub a different MOA base, other than that I might have to wait another month. So went with a 20 MOA instead of a 30.
    I went with the 40!

    Anyone with a 60 moa base, I have a question can you zero at 50 yards?

    mid not what is the yardage you can zero?

    I have a nx8 so I do have lots of travel..

    I am getting ready to order a V22. But I am not sure what barrel length or profile to go with for my setup.

    Plan right now is a left handed action, in a xylo chassis, and will always wear a thunderbeast takedown 22. With a BixnAndy tacsport


    Question is what is the best barrel length and profile to go with?

    What kind of shooting? I'm guessing xylo chassis = PRS style? If so then get the 18" MTU. Normally I'd say 20" MTU, but if you're always going to run a suppressor then drop it to 18".

    It literally doesn’t matter. They all shoot fine from 16.5” all the way to 22”.

    Lighter contours and shorter barrel will make balancing the rifle harder.

    Anyone know if vudoo will slug the barrel for you? I’m assuming since they make the barrel whatever length you want it’s not part of their process. Curious if it’s an option.

    The Xylo is rear heavy. I have an 18" kukri and I need to buy weights to balance it out.

    I read "somewhere" that Vudoo does not slug the cut rifled barrels which is what are used on the V22. Same "somewhere" I read that they will be slugging the Single Shot rifle barrels as some are not cut rifled. Sorry for no link to the source I read.

    Looking for opinions on barrel length and taper before I place my finalised order.

    Looking at either a 18-20in kukri
    Or an 18-20in mtu. (Into a separately purchased mpa hybrid)

    Obviously the mtu is heavier, but not sure that would make a difference on a .22
    Im not looking to replicate a centrefire rig so makes no difference in that regard.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have two Vudoo repeaters and they both have 23" barrels with a kukri taper and I'm very pleased with them, they are great shooters. If it were me I'd order a 22" kukri and call it good. I just like a slightly longer barrel for balance and 22" is still not too long. I had one with a 16.5" barrel and it was a great shooter also but just did not feel right to me. It also produced a sonic crack sometimes with some of my favorite ammo (SK Biathalon Sport) where the slightly longer barrels did not.

    Good luck, Shane

    I have a 22” MTU and wish it was heavier. I want it to have more weight in the front to balance in a Foundation stock and be closer to my centerfire.

    I'm not sure if it's because my barrel was slugged per se, but I ordered 20" and my actual delivered length was 18.75 inches. So I emailed Jill about it; here is the substantive part of her reply (italics mine):
    Our lengths are "published lengths" [....] our main goal being to make sure the tight portion of the barrel occurs right at the muzzle. This happened to occur very close to 19” on your barrel blank.

    So the blank they started with was 20" and ended up cut at 18.75 inches. She offered to replace my barrel with one much closer to 20 inches. Nope. Rifle shoots like it's supposed to. An inch of barrel length was not a priority for me. Everything about ordering, receiving, and owning a Vudoo has been exemplary.

    Is there an advantage of buying a fully built rifle vs just the barreled action and putting my own trigger and chassis on it?
    Depends.
    • If you already have certain components, of course it makes sense to use them. I'm sure Vudoo will be very forthcoming with advice and caveats if you ask (which seems sensible). When you call Vudoo, a live, knowledgeable person answers the phone. If a machine answers the phone, leave a message and your call will be returned promptly.
    • If you order the complete rifle from Vudoo, you'll have a package whose components are assured to work together. If a problem occurs, the questions of component compatibility and assembly errors outside their control are eliminated.
    • It's been over a year and a half since I got my V22, but my recollection is that ordering the assembled rifle was about the same cost, or slightly less when shipping was considered, as price-shopping and ordering the components separately.
    • Is your time worth any $$? If so, and you need all or most of the components, a complete-rifle order is sensible... also see bullet #2 above.

    You can also send some of your components there and they can put it on for you before they ship it out. I had them put on my trigger.

    I have a question about rifle weight and balance, less scope. What does an 18" Kukri taper barreled action weigh in an MPA BA chassis? How does it balance? Thanks in advance.

    It's not going to balance well. You'll need a full front weight kit. You say less scope, but I mean you're going to be running a scope on the rifle :) I haven't tested it w/o a scope, but I know running a Vortex PST II, Razor AMG, ZCO, it's really back heavy and you'll need a lot of weights up front.

    I've got a 22" (actual just over 21") spiral fluted kukri in a mpa ba with the mpa front weight kit.

    Still not enough to balance it - need another ~2lbs out front to get balance point ahead of mag well.

    Right now the best balance I can find is a KRG X-Ray/Bravo/Whiskey with weight kit, can get the arca alu foreend too which adds more up front weight too.

    I also advise most people to buy a 20" MTU to not have to pay extra $$ for weights.

    Ive got a carbon bergara in a xray with arca alum forend and still needed the Tweight to get it to balance at the front of the magwell. Even with that still is a touch rear heavy on most barricades.

    Yeh that's why I don't buy carbon barrels. Go carbon if you're building a lightweight hunting rig, not for PRS.

    I'm partial to the Bravo. I've worked hard and spent a lot of $$$ to get it to balance with an 18" Kukri. Either a 18"+ MTU or a 20"+ Kukri to be safe with the Bravo. BTW, the polymer tool-lees buttpad height mechanism weighs less than two polymer spacers. I've added every weight and add on to the fore end, mine's aluminum, that I've probably got AI chassis money into it. ;) I've added the NV bridge just for the weight. With the bipod and suppressor, it balances really well. It will even balance fairly well w/o the suppressor and bipod only. Without those it tends to be just slightly butt heavy. Throw the Railchanger-X with a schmedium Game Changer on and it's golden.🤠
