If you could have only one rifle, what would it be

Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Between those two calibers I would have to take the 7mm Rem. Mag. But, I' ll take my 338 Win. Mag. over the other two, just because it smacks game with authority and it' s a superior cartridge.

Between the 30-06 and 7mm Rem Mag, I would have to go with the 7mm. The 7mm is flatter shooting much better for longer shots. I like my 270 and put it very close to the 30-06.Either you choose would be a good choice.You have more choices with different weights and types of bullets using the 30-06.

Between the two you listed, The 30-06 without question But if I could only keep one rifle it would be my Rem 700 22-250. Its Legal for Big Game where I live and although it is not my first choice for Deer, I don,t think I could do without it. A second choice but still keeping only one ? 6.5x55 mauser.

i myself would choose the 06 , they will almost do the same job , the only real difference is the 7 mag has a better trajectory , and further range in accuracy , the shells also cost more and the rifle has more kick to it , if you live in a wooded area and hunt there then the advantages the 7 mag has don' t really come into play that much.

i myself would choose a .35 whelen , better expantion , capable of taking any north american big game , and for me there' s just something about that .35 calibre that i really like
