Yeah, I don’t get any wax from the sk/lapua offerings. The eley ones in the other hand us a wax type lube. While not in my vudoo, I haven’t had problems with eley in my other 22s either

Only time I've had issues with Eley's wax is on some ammo that's so old that the wax has turned white & that flakes off when ran through a repeater. Careful single loading in my Anschutz still works, but the worst of this is some old black box Match that was old when I bought it (at a discounted price) from Champion's Choice nearly 20yrs ago....

using a NF NX8 4-32 mil-xt. Vudoo came with 20moa rail, using a spuhr 3601 that has 20moa and can't get the elevation down enough to zero at 50yds. Anyone else run across this problem? Or am i doing something wrong ?

The combined 40 MOA is too much for your scopes available elevation adjustment. Try the 0 MOA top rail, that is the least expensive swap.

not quite sure how u figure this out, but would a spuhr sb-4802 13mil/ 44moa mounted on a 20 moa rail, be to much for the 7-35 that has 100moa/29MRAD internal adjustment?

Yes. That is too much. With a 40moa rail, you'll usually have about 4-5 mils left going down. With a 60moa rail you will most likely bottom out.

I have an NX8 4-32 and a 3601 with 20moa rail and had no issue zeroing at 50 on my Vudoo.

Put her together and off to the range. Here's my report:
Awesome ...
Scope is only OK but I'll pull a Razor off a big gun this week.
Stock is going to Stock Doc for an adjustable cheek piece. Trigger is a two stage Calvin Elite ... also just OK. I will play with adjustments this week.
I am more impressed with the feel of quality and comfort (familiarity) of the feel compared to centerfires than I am with the actual performance. I shot SK Standard and Match. Actually shot the Standard better. I didn't measure groups but easy one hole at 50 and one inch at 100 if the wind stayed down. It was 30 degrees today but I'm kinda used to that.

What barrel profile is it?

Yup ... 18" Kukri. It is actually more barrel than I expected. I was torn between This and MTU and am VERY happy with the Kukri decision.
Which suppressor? Looks like a TBAC 22 takedown but looks fatter than mine does on my Kukri.

Be interested to read your comments on why you only consider the scope 'OK'. Lots of good reviews on the Athlon Ares ETR.

4.5-27. I assume the BTR. Also, the tube looks to be 30mm.
That's what I thought. ETR is a whole lot better glass than the BTR. Even though people have put reviews stating that the ETR is only clearer above 20x, When I switch from the ETR to my BTR, it's pretty night and day through my eyes...

Yes on all counts! BTR with 30mm tube. Clicks are mushy. Edges of glass not great and not as bright/clear as some other scopes. For the money its a home run ... I have another on my Kidd/McRee 10/22 and it certainly works. The Vudoo deserves better is really what I was implying. I like my Gen 2 Razors ... maybe I'll move one over on a trial basis.

I got out with my Vudoo for the first time today. The range I went to has 25 and 50 yard firing points but if someone is at 25 the 50 can’t be used. I was stuck at 25 for the duration. I was shooting FGMM. Here are a few of my groups.BB267B95-ABD5-4BD7-9009-C23414B58E0F.png605931AA-7931-44E1-8C27-077B417265E4.png40D52D51-1653-4D87-B410-A4897EFC4AD9.png

When you mentioned that the Ares BTR's turrets are a bit mushy, I figured you've got one of the Gen 1 Ares, not the new Gen 2 with improved optics & turrets. Sort of confirmed that when you mentioned that the price was really good. Once Athlon started production of the Gen 2, they dropped the MAP on the Gen 1s - so is that what you've got?

You can also take out the o-rings from the turrets, and clean all the grease/gunk out of it. It'll be much better.

Good tip! That actually works!

Regarding the scope ... It will not stop me from enjoying the rifle but I feel like this quality of gun deserves better. I bought three Ares scopes at once for a smoking deal so I am using them on other rigs. Definitely not dissatisfied for the price.

If I had the $$ I would had bought that rifle

I’m gonna get a second one but I’m gonna wait for the benchrest version or the long range version with the fast twist tube!
Wait, there's going to be a long range version? Where can I find more info on that?

Read Ravage’s post real close, there’s a thread on barrel twist, might be worth reading through..
Fast twist groove over 22” seem to Have some promise beyond 100 yards once Mike perfects that.. I’m thinking he will likely offer it as an option.
