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

First choice, 7MM Mag, second, .30-06. These two are about the most versatile rounds for varmints to big game. I'd choose the 7MM just cause it shoots flatter. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

I would have to go with a 25-06AI but the AR is not a bad idea or possibley M1A1

AJ, because I am basically a long range varmint hunter, if I had only one rifle to use it would be what I am currently getting ready to build;
1. 6x284 Match Chamber for Lupua Brass .272 tightneck
2. Nesika Model L, 1.700 Diameter Action
3. Krieger, 30", 1-8.5 twist, 1.450 straight cylinder
4. McMillan Tooley MBR Stock, 5 Pounds lead added to rear
5. Jewel 2oz Trigger
6. Vias Muzzle Brake
7. Davidson 20 MOA Scope base
8. Kelby 30mm Rings
9. Nightforce 12x42x56 NXS with MLR Reticle
10. Overall weight will be 32 pounds

Like I said, I am basically a long range varmint hunter and this is the one rifle I want to have for what I do.
