If you could only have 3 rifles

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...
