What caliber would you add?

Default What caliber would you add?

I've always been one to only keep gun's and caliber's that I have a purpose for. So I've spent the past few years selling and trading my guns to have a gun to fit most occasions.

I'm in the mood to add something new to the collection and sell one I'm not using (it's too pretty to hunt with).

Here is my collection, I remembered them all.

Small Game
Savage 93 - .17HMR
Marlin Model 60 - .22LR

Varmit
TC Encore - 22.250

Deer & mid size game
Weatherby Mark V Ultra lightweight - .270
Browning Bar II - 30.06 (currently selling)
Weatherby Mark V Ultra lightweight - 30.06

Large Game
Weatherby Accumark - .300 WBY

Blackpowder
TC Encore - .45 Blackpowder
TC Encore - .50 Blackpowder (next one to buy for Elk)

Shotguns - Deer and Waterfowl
Savage - Single shot - .20g (was my first gun) sentamental
Winchester ? Auto - 20g (My grandfathers gun)
Remington 870 Wingmaster- 12g (up to 3" shells)
Beretta Xtrema 2 - 12g (up to 3.5" shells)
Tar-Hunt - 12g slug

What caliber (not gun) would you add next, if this was your collection?

Looking for any gaps.

I would think a nice 16ga would be a good one to add.

It looks like you pretty much have the long guns covered. How about a 44 mag handgun? Maybe not your thing. Just a thought.
