Re: If you could only have 3 rifles

1. 22-250. Varmints and small game
2. 325wsm Everything else at under 300 yards In a rifle under 8 pounds scoped and loaded
3. 338 edge incase I get the urge for anything over 300 yards.

Re: If you could only have 3 rifles

22 LR For small critters like Rabbits, squirrels, Game birds

243 For deers, predators

300 WSM, good on powder usage, and if I have to save myself to eat, shots would be with in reason as not to burn unnecessary calories or energy, so 800 yards would be my limit to walk and retrieve. This caliber would kill anything with in that yardage.
