Good choices, and add a .243AI for third pick for practice, deer and under, and cheap shooting, other than 22lr.

I'm going to research .416s now.

If you weren't limiting it to things that can be chambered in a Model 70 action I'd say .408 Cheytac as the "African Dream Gun".

In fact it might be possible on the same action they build the .375.

The .408 Chey stays supersonic out to 2200 meters plus.

That's enough energy to take the largest and most dangerous game ar a thousand yards and beyond.
