Which calibers/guns would you like to see brought back or made?

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

Which calibers/guns would you like to see brought back or made?

I would love to see more left handed guns. I am very happy with the options that are out there now (particularily Winchester), but I'd love to have more options !

Hopefully Winchester releases the .325 WSM in a lefthanded Featherweight.

Cheers,
Donavan

While the .30-06 is still my hands down favorite, I like the oddball European calibers; I am glad that Ruger and Winchester offer the 6.5x55, and I just picked up a Remington 700 Classic in 8x57 mm Mauser (hope to head to the range for the first time with it in an hour or so.)

I wish that there were more bullets and loading data for the 8mm Mauser. Factory loads are anemic, understandably. The 8x57 can do nearly anything the .30-06 could do, given a decent bullet selection.

I wish that the Ruger M77 RSI came in more calibers, especially 7x57, 7mm-08, and .260.

I'd love to see more rifles chambered in .280 Remington too. This looks like an awesome caliber.

All these responses for the old Savage 99 made me think about the old .303 Savage. I wouldn't mind seeing that come back in a limited run. Of course, someone would have to start making ammo. I'd think a Winchester powerpoint (180 grains at 2400 or so would be pretty effective). My dad killed a lot of deer with that old gun.
