308 Winchester M70 or M700 or M98, 24" barrel with detachable magazine. I do not see much I could not hunt in the world with this rifle and the right bullet.

Re: if you could only have 1 gun

I like the looks of the SSG 08 myself. I would get the 338 Lapua Mag since that is a popular caliber over seas. That thing has huge potential to rock any Ibex you want to put down as far as you want to shoot (within reason).
