Just wanted to drop a general FYI to all Vudoo hopefuls waiting on builds in the near term -
I was one week past my projected ship date on a V22 BA that was changed to a 360, so I emailed yesterday asking for an update and received this email below from Jill at Vudoo:

“Your barrel has been spun. Normally you'd only be about 2 weeks out at this point. However, we've had a "heat treating" delay of our firing pins. As a result it could be a week or two longer (maybe!) I will know more this next week. I will follow up with you to let you know, as soon as I know more 🙂

Have a great weekend!!”

Yup thats the same response I received. One thing is they are super awesome to work with. My rifle was supposed to ship this week. But as you see above the firing pin has delayed it. It allowed me to make a last minute change! Also I'd rather have it right than have to call them with issues...

    Spent 4 hours at the Gun Range this morning. I received my Burris XTR3 this week and removed my RT25. I really like the XTR3. I think there is a Parallax issue going on in my RT25 as I was having major issues being able to focus the Reticle and Target over the past 2 weeks. I will be contacting Burris this following week. I have also found a Lot of SK Rifle Match my rifle don’t care for at all. The SK Standard + it seems to like fairly well. 50 yard target and 100 yard target. 50 rounds of each flavor on each target. Paper targets were off the bench. Rifle Match is on top. Then I worked on 200 rounds of barricade shooting at 100 yards. Ladder, Tank Trap and pipe rack.Rifle now has right at 1600 rounds through it.

    Shot my first ever match today, a PRS Rimfire at the Quantico Shooting Club, using my V-22 in an AICS. I didn't do as well as I would have liked (18th) but at least I looked good. :)

    Wow, those are some good groupings! Nice shooting. More than good enough for NRL22 matches. I too have a VTRIII Really good scope. My only complaint is with my old eye, the .2 increments can be hard for me to see with my old eyes. But excellent scope.

    I opened up a new case of SK Rifle match last night to see if it was better. I can say it is WAY BETTER that the previous case I have 3500 rounds left of. I will dedicate this case to long range PRS/ NRLX matches. And the 3500 rounds to a standard NRL22 COF. I stretched her legs out to 400 yards this morning and was banging a 10” plate at 400 no problem. Targets is 3-10 shot groups at 100. Data is of 1 of those 10.

    Question to anyone using NF ATACR F1 7-35 on their builds....

    Any issues with parallax for NRL22/PRS distances?

    Cool, wasn't sure since some forums indicate that owners have a issue with the printed distances on the knob not matching up to targets distances.... thanks

    Printed distances on the knobs match up to distances at room temperature. As it gets colder, it generally will take more on the knob to line up. For example on the ZCO at 45 degrees, I'm usually at the 150 mark on the knob for 100. At room temperature it's spot on. In a 100+ degree temp, I'd be at the 80ish mark for 100.

    That's interesting, as I am not experiencing that with my razor or just not paying attention and adjusting the parallax knob as needed.

    Numbers on any scope’s parallax are just rough estimates. Sometimes they are close but usually they are there to get you in the area to fine tune it.

    Appreciate the responses, not going to beat the dead Horse on parallax just wanted to know how's NF working out for the 22 crowd....

    We're picking one up for my brothers 20" MTU and that's the route he wants to go.

    I run a razor and from comparison the ATACR does have tighter field of view...but can't compare it since dont remember looking thru one before to give a opinion.

    Any recommendations for a Vudoo mag holder? I think I need to upgrade from my cargo pocket. :)
    I had 2 custom made by my FFL, there are couple on the market (short action precision) etc but if someone can correct me, any aics mag holder will work

    Thanks, that's what I thought about the AICS holders but was wondering if there might be other options.

    Where are you finding that SK ammo?

    I run Zero Compromise ZC527 on both my PRS and Vudoo rifles. I had a Razor Gen II, but the parallax at 25yds was a bit blurry (Parallax on Gen II starts at 32 yds but I tried to push it). LOVE the ZC527 reticle, especially for the 22LR stuff, parallax down to 25yds, and the glass is crystal clear.

    What magnification were you using on the Razor when it was still blurry?

    With all the activity in rimfire world since the launch of the original V-22 and more recently, two new three lug platforms, many that are newer to the rimfire disciplines have joined us to enjoy a pretty incredible set of shooting opportunities. With this, there are many questions, comments, discoveries, etc., to be shared, so I've started a new page on IG called Vudoo Labs (@vudoo_labs).

    On this page, I'll be sharing info related to ongoing projects, troubleshooting of various rimfire intricacies, etc. One topic in particular is related to individual results/outcomes at ammunition test facilities and the conversation is based on actually being at the facilities and providing my own follow-up testing/diagnoses.

    I'll also share some of the same info here, but not at the level of detail found on the Vudoo Labs IG page.

    History is a pretty awesome thing. As I've looked back over the course of this thread that's been going since August 2017, I've thought about what's next....what follows the Vudoo Three60 Action? But then it struck me....I thought to myself, "well, let's take a look at where it all started." So I went to my office and pulled out the original RAVAGE Rifle. I've not shot this thing for about a year and was suddenly compelled to take it with me on an upcoming trip to MT, where I lay waste to gophers for about a week.

    Knowing I had to go to the range today to finish off some testing on a V-22 that was exhibiting sensitivity issues, I decided to take it along to see where it's shooting and OMG! This. Thing. Shoots! I believe a few are already aware, but in case you're not, this is the very first Remington 40X that I converted to test the new magazines way back in the day. It's hand built from parts that I designed and as I recall, I hand made most of the DBM (all manual machining). It's also the rifle that forced me to realize that I'd need to design my own chamber which, to this day, is used in every Vudoo V-22 build shipped from St. George. This rifle originally had a Winchester 52D chamber and I played with it a bit to get it to work the way I wanted, which is what led to the 22LR RAVAGE chamber.

    The stock is a Manners MCS-T that was injection bedded and hand-finished. I made and sold the Specter NV Mounts for a while, but this was the first one. You can't see it in the photo, but I made a fully boxed Anschutz Rail and fit it into the forend. The barrel is the first Krieger KUKRI contour, of which, I used lots after this rifle.

    So what does this rifle tell me? Where do I go from the Three60? I think I know....

    6-BFF7986-F2-D8-431-D-BE4-B-E608-EF783-EFC.jpg


    Right out of the case, to see where this thing was hitting, my point of aim was the end of the staple. It hit a little high, so I fired another eight rounds (target distance is 50 yards). Then, a click down takes impact it to POA; the end of the staple....just like I remembered.

    E3940-CA6-2232-45-CA-900-C-7960-D789-F4-F7.jpg


    So I moved to the staple on the top corner, 10 shots.

    E337-D6-B6-3459-4387-ACBD-6-F5-FDCD04127.jpg


    I'm going to enjoy shooting this thing for a week, just like old times....

    Since everyone knows that short barrels in rimfire always show a higher ES/SD than the longer barrels... This from an ACE 16 inch barrel from one of my Vudoos.

    It had been a while since I had put any of my ammo over a chrono, maybe a half case or more. Just to make sure nothing had changed I ran 10 rounds of a solid lot of Red and 5 rounds of a 20-25 year old lot of Blue round nose.

    The Tenex is right there at the speed of sound. Every once in a while I get a supersonic crack, but accuracy is still amazing.

    The Pistol match is a really good lot and will shoot bugholes right up there with all the best ammo flavors I have used.

    I just got a new 12 round aluminum magazine, and it came with a 3D printed loading tool and a little flyer advising not to use the tabs on the side for loading. Is this really absolutely necessary, if I've never had a feeding problem after loading using the tabs? I always leave enough tension to make sure the rounds are stacking properly. Thoughts? @RAVAGE88

    My opinion, based on the actual objective, no sir, it's not necessary. However, not everyone loads the magazines the same way and we're trying to offer something that helps everyone reach the same objective. I don't use the tool.

    I've been sharing technical content over on Instagram under vudoo_labs. It's easier and faster to share there because I can do it on the run, at the range, or wherever and all I need is my phone. Anyway, take a look at the two pictures below for a revision I do to my own magazines and I've started doing it to customer magazines when I bring in rifles to take a look at for one reason or another.

    I simply remove the rear corner of the follower and I started doing this because of the tighter tolerancing in the Aluminum magazines. The angle isn't vitally important, but I work to maintain 45 degrees as I do these by hand on my belt sander. Makes an appreciable difference in the Polymer and Aluminum magazines.

    Does this help with feeding issues? Or make for more reliable feeding?
