    .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

    Tough question:

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

    Hunting:
    .375 H&H--70 Win
    This with the proper load will drop a deer or elephant

    .204 Ruger
    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.
    (Please Mr Carlock, bump me to the front of you list, I won't tell.
