    .243Win, 7mmRemMag and .300WinMag. I'd be one pissed off feller if I had to get rid of all but one! JohnnyK.

    338! In my opinion it's the BEST all around caliber for long range hunting. Best combination of bullet selection,sectional densities,B.C., and down range, on target,delivered K.O. power,and you can still get components at a reasonable price.

    I would have to choose my 300 WSM shooting 200grn or 210grn bullets. It will kill anything I want it to and more. Efficient, fast, and lots of snot to get the job done.
