.270 Because it is a great deer gun and can be used for larger game if needed

7mm Rem Mag Because it is just an all around great caliber

338 EDGE Because it can reach out and touch something

Re: If you could only have 3 rifles

Tough question:

Survival:
.22 Lr--Ruger 10/22
.223----AR-15
.308----Rem. 700P

Hunting:

This with the proper load will drop a deer or elephant

With my handloads it shoots cloverleafs all day and it's cheap to shoot.

.257 Weatherby
Shoots like a laser and knocks deer DRT.

338Edge
For the big stuff clear out there, way out there!
My Edge is currently being built by Defensive Edge.
