Vudoo Cleaning



Log in to see fewer ads
I've only run a few patches through my Vudoo using a piece of PVC pipe as a bore guide. This seems to work, but I'm concerned that the ejector is still exposed which may contact the cleaning rod. I sue an old brass rod that I've had for years. There is a video on Vudoo's website with specific recommendations for a Bore Tech rod guide. I have questions for you.

1. Do you use a bore guide and what brand?
2. What kind of cleaning rod are you using?

I use a Bore Tech guide which was developed with Vudoo specifically for that action. I use a Shooters Choice .22 rod generally with a Bore Tech jag and properly sized patches (although I'm liking the Tipton Felt Pellets at the moment) along with Bore Tech Rimfire blend. if I feel a need to brush, I use Bore Tech nylon brushes. I didn't really realize it but apparently I like Bore Tech, lol.

Thanks...

Exclamation No more rods for me ever again!

Ever since I read the owner of Bartlein barrels hasn't used a rod to clean his barrels in over 20 years, I only use the plastic pull-thru cleaners on my 22's.
Works great for my Chacon custom and will for my future Vudoo.

More info. My Vudoo developed a bad carbon ring in the leade. Hard to get out with just patches and nylon brush soaked in Bore Tech Rimfire blend. I called Vudoo and a technician suggested using a wet bronze brush in the chamber and rotate it. That got rid of it. The carbon was really affecting accuracy and I got a lot of fliers that I couldn't explain.

Seriously he told you to spin the brush in the chamber leade!
I hope he didn't say use a cordless drill too!

Shouldn't have let it go that long without cleaning. I use a 50% Vinegar and Peroxide solution. Plug the Muzzle and fill bore and let it soak. Sure beats ruining your barrel with a spinning brush.

I use the rod guide for my Rem. 40x in my Vudoo. I don't think the brand really matters. I don't even remember who made mine, but it's made of Delrin and probably came from MidwayUSA.

Please don't do this^^^^. Especially with a bronze brush and cordless drill. I realize someone from Vudoo said do it, but it's wrong and I'll follow up with the shop to assure this advice won't be propagated any longer.

Yes. I clean rings out frequently with a Nylon brush, but I don't do a lot of brushing. I use a chamber plug, stand the rifle on the butt, fill the bore with BoreTech Carbon Remover and let it soak for an hour or so. After the soak, pour out the Carbon Remover and a few easy strokes with a Nylon brush takes it away very easily. Any time one can eliminate a lot of excessive brushing, the better.

Thanks, Mike. Where can I get a chamber plug for .22 LR? The only ones I can find are for center fire cartridges.

I never realized that chamber plugs were so hard to com by since I bought mine years ago. After realizing they're not available anywhere, I designed one in SolidWorks and sent the model over to BoreTech. They'll be making them very soon.
