ITs always sad to think of only having three rifles but for the sake of the question:

Medium weight 22-250 for all varmint/predator hunting

Sporter weight 7mm Allen Magnum for all general purpose big game hunting

Heavy sporter in 338 Allen Magnum for all long to extreme range hunting.(this may well change to a 375 AM with more testing, I am so far very impressed with the 375 AM but the 338 AM is proven).

Kirby Allen(50)

Allen Precision Shooting

Farther, Faster and Flatter then ever before.

Since the question seems to focus on "big game" rifles, I'll jump over the many great smaller game calibers. I'd start with a hot 7mm (something like a STW or Kirby's) for longer stuff, use a 338 win for general big game hunting, and a 470NE double for dangerous game.

I would only need one...and use it to shoot reason to live if you could only have three!

But...should I decide to go on living such a limited life I would have;

280 Rem.
7mm RM
7mm RUM
There is not such thing as too many guns, safes or fishing poles!
