I currently DO run only 3 and don’t really feel any need to change

243 win

270 win

300 win mag
Though as others have posted their “if I started over again” ideas I think I’d “modernize” to
6mm creed, or 6xc, or 6x47 lapua (so many cartridges all right around this point) or maybe the original that got it right, the 6mm Remington.

would probably go with either a .270 ai with a fast twist, 6.5-06 ai, or 280 rem for mid power.

might upgrade the win mag to a .300 rum.

Well given my age:
223 Rem for varmints/small game
243 for deer sized critters
7mm mag Rem or a 30-06 w/220 gr SP for the biggest critters that I am liable to encounter.
Not going to Africa and the big animals in our local zoo have not been liberated so don't need a shoulder breaker.
Since I have them all, reload each one and I have confidence in them.

One of these days we’ll have to face the truth by starting a “if you could only have 12” conversation and realize we’re still all debating and overthinking things at that count haha. How does one decide what to leave out!!!!
