22 mag. You can kill anything in the world with it, plus you can carry lots of ammo for cheap.

Re: if you could only have 1 gun

If I remember right your living in Turkey, how is it for getting a rifle imported? I would think that would play a large part in the decision. From your pics I would shooting a 338 Lapua or a 338 Norma, you have some huge long range potential!

Right now I think for myself I would run something like what Len is selling in the LRH store but chambered in a 338 Norma Mag and made to a little lighter specs. I think a guy could do a little more hunting on foot but still have a very long range capable rig!

Unless you hand load, choose one with a good supply of quality ammunition.

7mm, 30 cal, and 338 cal are all available with good long range bullets in a wide variety of high performance cartridges.

But, your choices for factory ammo in Turkey are probably different from here in the US.

I agree with the 338. Since you can buy 338RUM ammo at a store, that would be my choice, that or the 338 Lapua. If not one of these, the 338 Win Mag.
