    No need for the 22LR. The OP is talking about Center fire. Not Rim fire.

    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.

    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
    .35 whelen

    Could throw .270 or .6-06 if you wanted

    Other than the .22 stuff everything is .30-06 family.
