Definitely missing a .257 Wby, .280 AI, .220 Swift, maybe a few others...

A magnum 30 is an absolute must in any collection.
300WSM
300Win
300Wby
300RUM
All are great choices. & all can fit the bill for most any situation in N. America.
A 338Win, or a 375 of some kind would be tied for my # 2 choice with the cartridges you already own.
