Masterpiece Arms BA 6.5 Creedmore w/Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27X56 scope

Posted (edited)

This is my new Masterpiece Arms BA 6.5 Creedmore w/Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27X56 w/EBR-1C MRAD Reticle scope.  I was wanting a custom build rifle, but did not want to spend 5 or 6 thousand for one.  After a lot of research decided on the Masterpiece Arms BA 6.5 Creedmoor.  The rifle build from the company cost just over $3000, but can be purchase for less from BudsGunShop and KYGun Company.  I found that out after placing my order.  I really likes this rifle and the only con would be the weight.  The rifle alone weighs 12.5lbs and the Vortex Razor HD Gen II scope weighs 3lbs.  This combination makes for a very heavy rifle.

The scope is a Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27X56 FFP w/EBR-1C MRAD Reticle .  This is not the first scope I had on the rifle.  The first scope I mounted was a Vortex Viper PST 6-24X50 FFP.  I liked the PST, but really wanted the Razor and I am glad I made the decision to make the change.  The PST was a great scope, but the Razor is an incredible scope.

This morning I shot the rifle with the Vortex Razor for the first time.  I sighted the scope in and shot at 100, 200, and 300 yards.  Below is  the target MSSA uses to qualify people at the 200-300 Norris range.  To qualify the shooter must hit five shots in the 100, 200, and 300 circle. The small circle in the lower right corner is the 100 2" circle.  The middle circle is the 200 4" circle and the top circle is the 300 6" circle. This rifle has a 3/8 MOA guarantee at 100yds, but today I was a little off.  I was a little better at 200 and spread it out a little at 300, but will take it for an old guy with bad eyes. Overall I am very happy with my Masterpiece Arms BA 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle.

I like that.  That's a nifty placement of the level.

At first I thought the same thing but then I thought about it some more.  Can the spirit level be checked without coming out of the gun?  I would think not.  Once you've established cheek weld and cleaning everything up to send the shot it seems it would be impossible to check down there for cant  without disturbing your position.

Not sure a scope mount is much better for that. I have to break cheek weld on mine, and it's a scope mounted Vortex. Easy to see if you don't have a scope in your eye.

I too have a scope mounted level on a Vortex scope.  On mine and can glance over and see it with my off eye without breaking cheek weld.  Everyone is a little different on things like this.

Been a little while since I did that kinda shooting. Level check for me happens after I quit moving the gun around, before final cheek weld. If I get the gun level and take note, I can keep it there while I do the last few things. The main purpose of a level is to keep you from lining up with unlevel ground.

I will agree with you on this but I have on occasion thought I had done nothing to significantly change anything only to look over and see otherwise.  Then again my wife thinks I'm more than a half bubble out of level just about all the time.

That's a problem no equipment will fix :)

I'm kind of surprised that no one has made a high end scope with a level inside the tube.  It seems like you could even make it so that it was at the top of the field of view or someplace unobtrusive.  

I expect you could even do it with a mirror and red dot in a way that if you can see the dot you're level - if not you need to adjust.

 Yes I can check the level without coming off the gun.    Once I have spotted my target through the scope all I have to do is look down and then reengage the target through the scope.  I never leave my check weld.

If this is possible then I'm liking that feature.  I'm thinking I may have to add a Masterpiece Arms BA rifle to my bucket list of guns to get.

Someone makes one, seen an article about a scope with an internal bubble level. The article was a long time ago but I do remember.

Thanks man, that's not what I needed to hear.  I said I was adding it to my list which means there are others that may be of more importance than a Masterpiece Arms BA at this time.  Well since you mentioned it, what caliber and which end of the state is it located?

OK...I'm an idiot. I thought we were chatting up a classified thread, :)  I guess this one isn't for sale.

No worries.  I have other goodies on my short list and don't need to know if something like this is up for consideration anywhere near me.
