Vudoo 22LRA vs Anschutz 1727F



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm in the market for a new 22LR - something with accuracy out the ying-yang, but otherwise non custom. Is there a reason to pick one of these over the other? I like the Fortner action - and the Vudoo press is overwhelmingly positive. I have shot a Fortner based action several years ago and liked it - haven't shot a Vudoo. What would you all say about the relative pros and cons here?

Never shot either but since the Vudoo is based off a Remington 700 SA you have all kinds of stock and chassis options.

The vudoo I have is heavy, 14+ lbs with scope and bipod. Heavy kukri contour barrel at 18" with grayboe renegade stock with adj cheek-piece. Very accurate, magazines had some initial issues feeding and loading but that seems to be worked out now. Don't like the eurostyle orbendorf inside trigger guard magazine release.

If I were to re-order it today, I'd get a lighter barrel contour and a stock with both adjustable cheek and LOP, probably the MPA chassis which has the mag release style I like and is lighter than the grayboe.

Overall, the Vudoo is a great rifle, especially if you are using it in a trainer or PRS style type of shooting. Just remember it is heavy.

Don't have a 1727F fortner, but I still crave one. My anschutz 1710 is a work of art and **** near half the weight of the Vudoo. I really like the toggle action on my PWS, cant imagine how much nicer the real thing would feel like. If $$$ wasnt an issue I probably would have gotten the 1727F instead of the Vudoo

Not sure I understand what your intentions are for this rifle I have a Vudoo in a J Allen Chassis and is very heavy ,but I use it primarily on the bench .So for me the weight is a good thing . I'm extremely happy with it .For me it's my ultimate bench rifle . It seems to require less effort to shoot really good groups .As for Anschutz they are legendary rifles .I don't have one yet but it's on my radar ,so I can only speak for the Vudoo. I am an extremely happy customer with an extremely accurate rifle.

I am unfamiliar with the Vudoo LRA, but the Fortner action Anschutz rifles come in two models, one a sporter and the other a biathlon rifle (diopter sights optional). Neither is an ideal bench rifle.

What does the Vudoo LRA look like?

Here's my Vudoo. I'm not going to compare it to a Anschutz as they are a top of the line rifle . I've stated before my Vudoo is heavy, but out of all the rifles I have it is the easiest at shooting good groups with various target ammo. I would say it's the equivalent with my Kidd Super Grade. I just don't have to work as hard with this rifle to make it perform .The other great thing is I swap out the barreled action with one of my .308 GA Precision so for me this setup works very well and I love the J Allen chassis.

I've been an Anschutz fan all my life. Came really close to buying one..... until I came across Vudoo. The interchangeability with Rem 700 platform components added a lot of value to me.



The people representing Vudoo have made the entire purchasing process very rewarding and the barreled action is very well made.

My inquiries with Anschutz USA have also been very positive. Hard to go wrong with either company, especially if the Fortner action is your choice.

I have both. Yes, more money than common sense.

I would say it depends on end use.

For a guy that wants a 22 that replicates his Remington 700 exactly, get the Vudoo.

For a guy that wants to take a 22 for a walk, hunt critters and look really cool doing it, the 1727 is a good choice.

Or, my solution to your problem is always out there.

Accuracy out the ying-yang equals custom you will be forced to make a choice there before you chose between any other rifles.

I agree the rifles you are mentioning as choice both are higher end $$$. At that price point you are well into custom territory, there simply is no rational reason not go that route unless you are talking the mega high $$$ Anschutz models. Even those all intents and purposes are custom. They aren't put together by the guy who started last week. The same level of detail goes into them as does a custom rifle so it's a wash. What you really need to do is come up with a set $ amount and that will guide you. No point in considering a build if it and the glass you put on it is beyond what you're willing to invest and most of all..... Rifles at that level are not generally fed $.05/rd ammo. You're looking at mid to high end ammo so factor that cost in as well. Speaking of ammo you'll need to know what brand of ammo you intend to shoot as barreling the rifle you should know what chamber dimensions for your brand of ammo you'll be running are correct. Eley and Lapua run different chambers, and bulk ammo tends to be a tight squeeze in them. If you truly are looking for accuracy Look at the RimX builds from Primal Rights Inc. His RimX builds will go head to head with almost anything made out there. His videos of live fire 6x5's in the .1 & .2's. That being said your going to be getting it ammo tested most likely by him or Eley or Lapua center and then dropping another $2.k minimum probably closer to $3k for 2 cases of same lot number ammo. $1k rifles are common anymore the real deals are the custom builds running $3-4k not counting glass. Also several of the custom builders are now beginning to offer tuners because they are becoming more mainstream as people learn how to use them. Sorry for this being so long but there is a lot more to consider $$ wise when stepping into the upper level of rimfire.

I donít have any experience with the anshutz. I have a Cooper custom Classic with a 9 power scope and a Vudoo in a MPA stock with a trigger tech diamond and 25 power scope. The Vudoo is definitely the heavy weight and for me the most enjoyable rifle I have to shoot. I find the accuracy to be exceptional. Canít really compare my rifles to each other, I look at them as sporter vs bench.

Nice target, treefeller! I had a Fortner, and happy with it, but just sold it. Been thinking Vudoo v22. $C3500 is a fair chunk, so would hope to get one that hits aspirins at 50yds, lol What bbl is on yours, and the stock?
