Wow nice stuff. Looks like about $1300 should get me out the door with muzzle brake, "0" MOA base and shipping.

    If you are going to be doing any prone shooting, I would get his solid bottomed brake, not the full profile radial (Holes all the way around it).
    Good that you looked at a total package: scope base and muzzle brake.
    Hopefully you were looking at the picatinny/Weaver type base. Right?
    My current MOA cartridges are: 6mm-284, 6.5x47 Lapua, 6.5-284, and 7mm Rem Magnum Improved.
    Here is a friend's MOA in action, that I used this past fall. 14" 308 Win using Hornady TAP ammo (168 grain A-Max).
    I always give my friend a hard time about the 308 Win as a LR cartridge, so when I said I would use his MOA, he definitely had to catch me on film using a 308
    It is a good cartridge, but it will come down to what you want, not what I use or want.

    For others potentially considering a MOA and want to get all they can get out of a MOA in 7mm:
    Today, If I was to do a big 7mm all over again, I wouldn't do the 7 Rem Mag Imp.
    I would go with the 7LRM.
    Standard magnum bolt face, no belt, and no wildcatting or fireforming.

    Mike,
    You are not needing or wanting a big 7mm though, from what I can tell.
    The 284 Win, 280 Rem and and 280AI are also great choices, but still more capacity than what your original desire was.

    I have heard those are pretty accurate rigs, but I think they can handle cartridges like the Contender, maybe a tad stronger.
