OK, if for some strange reason, you could only own three big game rifles, what would they be and why?

I am new to hand loading so my opinion may change as I get more into it.

For now:

375 H&H - I could hunt anything in the world. Some say it is the best "world" cal.

300 win mag. - I could hunt anything in North America. Lots of bullets to choose from.

280 rem mag. - I really like the way mine shoots. Its my best shooter by far.

I'd go with:

264 Win Mag for plains game
300 RUM... for anything and everything
375 H&H for the big stuff

Honorable mention goes to the 308 Win and 338 Win Mag...
