If you were limited to a single rifle/caliber, what would it be?

If it came down to only one rifle, I guess I would have to take a hacksaw and cut about 4 inches off the barrel of my 7 AM to get it down to 30 inches and then order another bucket full of 200 grain bullets.

I'd say it's doing pretty good as is, given your hunting success last fall, but a little shorter would be a little handier. I'm gonna have Kirby stretch mine out to about 32".

I'm a 308 Win fan too!

If it ever comes to that I know I can count of having a few folks around that I can swap rounds with if I hurting for ammo.

id have to go with something like a 444marlin or 45/70. either could be loaded way down for little critters, or up for bear or even moose. the bores are big enuf to even load shot in them. the 444 is basically a 410 shotshell anyway... in a pinch, blackpowder would be a viable option. the big bullets would get way out there too.
