Long range with VooDoo



Log in to see fewer ads
Had a chance to shoot a VooDoo V-22 Ravage rifle in a Ridgeback stock with a Timney trigger. The distance was 322 yards from which we were able to repeatedly hit a 3Ē steel target. It was a pretty outrageous set up. I have never tried to shoot at that distance before with 22 long rifle, so it was exciting and that is an amazing rifle. If you get a chance to play with one of those, jump at it; it was unbelievable. Thought there might be some interest.

Really shouldn't waste such great ammo on a steel target, save them for the Olympics.

Vudoo makes a heckuva fine rifle. But ammo capable of making regular hits on a 3Ē steel at 325 yards is miraculous. Iíd love to know what it was.

A 3" steel target was "repeatedly hit" at 322 yards. What was the rate of hits on the target -- e.g. 90%, 70%, 50%?

50% on the best day, realistically be under that. I've got a lot of good Shooters that shoot my matches with high end equipment and most are pretty happy to keep all shots on a 3 inch at 200 yards on any given day.

Fun to shoot the long range and sometimes the moon's align and groups/hits can be incredible and other times frustrating as heck.

My mistake, the ammo was Federal Gold Medal Ultra Match. The guy brought a brick and gave me a couple of boxes out of it. It took a few minutes to get the scope on and we had to measure the wind and watch the trees, but in the end the hit rate was probably 50% or a bit better. Several shots would just barely miss due to the wind. I understand the skepticism, if I hadnít shot it myself, I would be a slow believer, too. Make no mistake, though, this is no ďoff the shelfĒ 22 LR that you will ever see in a shop. It is made like the best center fire rifles youíll ever see; it also had an outrageous custom built scope on it.

By the way, my shooting buddy (not the rifle owner) has a 12 year old grandson that hit the target 4 consecutive times. That was a bit humbling for a bunch of men that have been shooting all their lives. . He has been taught well, though.

Apparently, he had a bit more than that in it with the scope and scope base. He set it up to shoot way beyond what we were shooting for exhibition work. At that price range, I doubt I will have one either. However, itís about the same as a good Anschutz or the like.

I am going to move my long range scope to my little Anschutz and see if I can get any results. It is said that it canít keep up, but I have found it does pretty well at distance. My current set up doesnít have enough MOA to stretch that far out, though. My long range scope has 65 MOA adjustment, so it should be able to get me there, but I need 30mm rings to mount it, on order. I guess Iíll find out. Good news is I have some high end Eley and this Federal Ultra Match to use in the effort.

Always, good fun!

That rifle with that stock starts at $2,500 plus tax.

You can buy them set up with the appropriate expensive scope as well. I didnít look farther than the base price for that rifle.

Match 54 set up for bench with a decent scope will set you back in the ballpark $1,800.

Long range with VooDoo

My 1969 match 54 with bench rest stock $1600 plus $500 for scope. So actually it would have been $2,100 not $1,800 but my point still remains the same. I could have gone cheep vortex for $200 and that would have been $1,800.

Voodoo with the stock mentioned starts at
$2,500 and you still have to buy scope mounts and scope.

If you get your voodoo with scope already mounted Iím sure it will be in excess of $3,000 and I suspect it would be very close to $4,000 if you bought the rifle from voodoo with thier scope and scope base set up for 300+ yards.

I could see doing that if your one of the fortunate people that do this kind of shooting with either your own budget that can afford or you do this full time with professionally with or without sponsors/sponsorships.

Excess of $3,000 for glass and .22lr rifle I just could not justify it past the cpa lady ďwifeĒ. ......

If you could find that model voodoo used on the market Iím sure it would still bring $2,500 just for the gun.

Extreme accuracy isnít cheap so Iím not knocking the price of the voodoo.
Itís just more than I can justify or justify to the boss lady.

I'm not surprised at all with a voodoo.
