Why is nobody shooting voodoo actions or rifles in BR? From what i am seeing on youtube & snipers hide forums these rifles are more than capable of competing in BR .

More than capable? In who's eyes? I haven't seen anything that makes me think they will be any better than any current actions being produced. Barrels and bullets thats what it's all about.

Seems like there're more keyboard marksmen than actual shooters. I can appreciate the effort of a niche manufacturer, and especially their participation in discussions like this.

(post edited as this discussion has drastically altered my knowledge on these matters, original post below)
Assuming you mean vudoo, as stated above, there's nothing (other than price) that makes them special.

My impression is they are the "daniel defence" of rimfire. Great quality, for sure. Plenty of similar (or arguably better) quality for much more reasonable prices.

I wasn't aware of any significant price difference from the Turbo or the Stiller 2500X

In our monty USBR match we now have about 20% of the rifles being shot are Vudoo's with more on the way.

Just a F.Y.I. we don't allow mechanical front rests (bipods only) or tuners.
Because of that we haven't seen any full on benchrest rifles show up (the Turbos and Stiller types in benchrest stocks).

So far the Vudoos have not been able to score quite as well as the Anschutz rifles which make up about 50% of our rifles.
The rest are mostly Win 52's, and an occasional Rem 37/40x, Kimber 82g's and HS's, along with the odd Suhl or Martini.

However I expect our Vudoo shooters to catch up at some point this year because they as a group, are less experienced.

I think the Vudoo attraction is their use in multiple shooting disciplines where the accuracy requirements are reduced.

Impression? How many have you actually seen? Handled?

Yessir, they are certainly capable and the number of guys using them in BR is rising. There are a couple of respected and capable builders finishing up rifles, so you'll see the numbers climbing.

As it relates to the repeaters, they are leaders in the disciplines you' re referring to, but these same repeaters are turning in respectable scores and some have won BR matches with them. The single shot is doing even better.

I believe the Vudoo V22S single shot BR barreled action has been available only since about October 2020. If it's going to make a name for itself in top level BR competition it will take a little more time than the three months that it's been available. In addition, it may take time for Vudoo users to establish themselves among top level shooters.

I agree Mike, I see the single shot as another option, not necessarily superior but not inferior either. John

The Vudoo single shot is available with a Shilen ratchet barrel and a Flavio Fare trigger with the proper cocking piece.

Scroll down for the single shot barreled action here:

https://vudoogunworks.com/action/v-22-barreled-actions/

Mike, are you going to offer the single shot in a benchrest stock?
I donít know why I donít have one.

The targets Iíve seen shot by Vudoos on the various forums are impressive.
