one bullet per gun?

Does anyone here stick to just one bullet and /or load for a certain gun?or do you have ammo loaded with different bullet/charge for different situations?

Two loads.

One long range load which gets almost all of the load development time and effort. The long range load is accurate and is loaded with a high BC bullet.

A different load for short range encounters with a different bullet, which gets very little load development time and effort. Normally a bonded lead core bullet or a Barnes TSX, and I'm not very concerned about the accuracy of this load or the BC value of the bullet. Short range load is for short range bear encounters, bear defense around camp, and for shots out to about 300 yards on the targeted game animal. I carry the short range loads in the magazine of my bolt action rifles while hiking around, should I bump into an ugly bear, or should I happen into a closer range shot on the targeted game animal.

I reload for hunting purposes only and always reload using one bullet, powder, cartridge and primer. Although, I generally experiment to get there, I always end up using the same manufacturers for bullets, powder, cartridge and primers for the different rifles/calibers that I reload.

Every rifle I have has one load, one bullet. I spend way to much time and testing on just one load to even think about multiple loads.

Ditto! Also, agree with Biggs300.
