what to buy meet

Ok, guys I'm new to the forum. Spent sometime searching and researching different calibers online today. I would consider myself an avid hunter and gun collector. I'm to a point in my collection where I'm buying odd, or hard to find ammo for rifles. Any way my question is??? Are there any obvious gaps in my collection that I'm over looking. 22lr, 2506, 708, 308,3006, 7mag, 8Mauser,
300mag, 7wsm, 6.5 creddmor, 6.5 swed, 270, 280, 375h@h,, 20 and 12 gauges, 357mag, 3030, and 243, that is what I have so far, most are bolt action rifles, few semi, handgun and lever, im looking to fill any gaps, im also in process lf getting a 50 Cal. Muzzleloader , advise me please

I get these calibers in my head, and I usually end up making a purchase. Lately its been 325 wsm or 270 wsm, or 8mm mag. But I have rifles that will do the same work. Or do I?

Some of the early cartridges 38-55, any of the .45's from the 45-70 up. A big .50 could cap one end of the possibilities for you.

Re: what to buy meet

First off the title is supposed to say what to buy next, I don't know about this swpe text with its auto correct, but I should have caught it. I passed a heck of a deal on a 22250. I should have not passed on that. I guess 4570 is on my list, maybe,. I don't know why I'm really wanting a 8 Remington magnum I know its just caliber lust.
