    I took the leap and upgraded from my Savage MKII to something I will never need to replace. I have only had it for 5 weeks, but I have put over 600 rounds through it and competed with it twice, my scores in NRL22 took me from no better than 10th to top 5 in our league. I am beyond pleased with my new Vudoo.

    Thanks JimP! It is a Vudoo .22 LR in a Grayboe Ridgeback stock from Vudoo gun works. It is a .22 patterned after the Remington 700 so you can swap any aftermarket triggers and stocks. It uses magazines patterned after AI mags to allow shooters to use these rifles as trainers to their centerfire counterparts, and makes mag changes easy. They are pricey, but incredibly accurate and well-made. I use mine in local NRL22 matches every month.

    This rifle gets more use than all of my others combined! It is an absolute blast to shoot and encouraging to know the little bullet will actually land where you mean to place it.

    It currently has an Athlon Midas Tac 6-24x50 but I am waiting for a new Razor 3-18x50 with EBR-7C reticle. I like the Athlon, it has clear glass and a very useful reticle but the Razor is so easy to get behind (I have a Razor 4.5-27x56 on my centerfire rifle). I have struggled to get a good sight picture with the Athlon in some of the positions we need to shoot from.

    Nothing fancy but a good shooting rifle just the same. Remington Model 597 with a Boyd's Varmint stock. Ordered the walnut pre-finished, which I didn't like so it got stripped and oiled. The only other modification was the Volquartsen extractor.

    A couple more pics. She is finally set up and will stay this way for a long time. Same rifle but with a 4.5-27x56 Razor with EBR-2C MIL reticle. I was going to use the EBR-7C but it is a bit cluttered around the center dot with the .2 MIL hash marks at either side for wind holds. I have no problem getting a clear picture on the 25 yard targets, just turn down the magnification a little, and the eye relief is awesome! I don't mind the weight, it is actually beneficial on the unsupported stages in NRL22.

    V22 action with an 18" Kukri profile Ace barrel in a Grayboe Ridgeback stock and Timney 2-stage Calvin Elite trigger.

    Action shot during a stage from the last match.


    Ready to go.

    I did some extended range shooting over the weekend with my new tripod setup. I set 12" and 6" steel plates at 270 yards and had stellar conditions = no wind. That tripod with the RRS Anvil 30 just holds my rifle so steady it's like shooting prone. It is a great combination, especially coupled with Center X. Great day!
