No need for the 22LR. The OP is talking about Center fire. Not Rim fire.
Thanks, I missed that detail, post edited...... replace with a 12 gauge
.44 & 30-30 Win 94
45-70 Long barrel lever cowboy
I used to have a lot more but decided to tone it down a bit and improve on what I have.
338 win/33 nosler
416 of some ilk
I have pondered this as well. I have always thought that if you were limiting your collection it would be nice to stick with the same family of brass. That becomes harder with the .22 cal stuff but 30/06 or .308 brass family would cover most everything else.
This would enable you to form everything out of the same casings.
223 - Mice to Coyote
243 - Coyote to Deer
308 - Deer to Elk/Bear
375 H&H - Everything else... and then some.
morning, 260AI and 340 weatherby. GBOT TUM
How about..These are the ones I use. I live in Kentucky and our choices will reflect the areas and game we hunt.
22 Nosler for light work. A "Black" rifle
25-06 Light and easy to carry ..Kills deer like crazy!
6.5 X 284 Good ambush rifle A bit heavy and long to carry a lot..But deadly accurate.
7MM Rem. Mag In case I draw a Ky. Elk tag
Here is my list ( after much deliberation )
.222 or .223
.25-06 or 6.5-06
.30-06 or .280 AI
Could throw .270 or .6-06 if you wanted
Other than the .22 stuff everything is .30-06 family.
I have the following:
338 Win Magnum LH
270 WSM LH
6.5 x 284 LH
338 is primary Elk rifle, which is the big game I hunt here in Utah, 270 is alternate. '06 is a sporterized 1917, works great
