Whats your caliber footprint?

How many different calibers do you own? If you own many different calibers, is there a reason, other than collecting? I currently own rifles in 6 different calibers:

.22
.223
7.62x39
.30-30
6.5x55
.30-06

I dont use the .30-30 other than a truck gun. If I really wanted to I could eliminate that, and put my AK in my truck. But the .30-30 was my Dad's, so its place is safe & sound in my arsenal. I dont need my AR's. But they're just so darned fun to shoot, and my 16" A3 lives on the side of my bed. Why do I own a 6.5 Swede, you ask? I dont know, honestly. I shoot it at the range, I once thought of replacing my .30-06, which is my go-to-deer gun, with it. But that'll never happen; Im a guy that doesnt like to fix what aint broke.

Honestly, I could eliminate 3 calibers from my arsenal, lowering my overall "caliber footprint" to 3 different rifle cartridges. Thus making ammo purchases easy. What about you.?

For hunting/shooting, I use 22LR (small game), 223 Rem. (varmits) and 308 Win. (pigs and deer). For "collecting" I have 270 Win., 30-30 and 30-06 Springfield. I have done some hunting with the 270 Win., which is a good all around caliber for the game most commonly found here.

How many different calibers do you own?


i really don't know - i haven't counted in probably a year or so. maybe 50?


If you own many different calibers, is there a reason, other than collecting?


yes, there is a reason.

the 22-250 is for prairie dogs, but sometimes the barrel gets too hot, so i got a 223 to shoot while the 22-250 was cooling. well, if i'm going to go to the trouble of having a 223, i might as well also have an ar-15. the ar-15 works pretty well to train novice shooters with because of light recoil and inherent accuracy, but new shooters should also know how to work a bolt gun. so the 221 came for that purpose, and doubled as a fantastic prairie dog gun. and etc.

anyway, that line of reasoning is what got me to where i am. i furthered that by developing other specific needs: i decided i wanted to hunt deer, so the 7 rem mag came, and it is a fantastic deer killer.
but what to use for elk? a 338 win mag, of course.
but what if i'm just hunting cow elk? seems like a 308 win will work great.
but what of dark timber, close range elk? surely a custom 8x57 would fill in there.
and antelope? a 25-06.
mule deer in river breaks? a 264 win mag.
mule deer on prairie? a 300 win mag.
whitetails on prairie? a 300 wsm.
on river breaks? 7-08.
in timber? 30-30.
what about cross canyon timber shots? 300 savage.
how about a classic deer gun? sure, 270.
short action? 260.
long action? 30-06.

then there's the 'specifics' niche: i need to drive a 160 grain bullet at 3300 f/s: 7 rum.
i just don't know what to do with all of this ramshot hunter. 257 roberts.
i got this smokin' deal on this nightforce scope so i bought it, but i don't have anything to put it on. 338 rum.

then there are the needs addressed by having multiple platforms:
i think i like the idea of a 30 carbine, but don't know what else to do with it outside of punching close range paper because it is kinda small. answer: blackhawk.

you know, this marlin 1895 45-70 is a lot of fun, but i wonder if i can get some more use out of the cartridge. answer: yep. bfr.

and then there is the 'test the theory' specialties that require guns. for example, this marlin in 357 sure makes the 357 mag a powerhouse of a cartridge. oh really? well, i'll pick up this 686 over to the gunstore, and let's put 'em over the chrony...

so, you see... it isn't hard, and doesn't take that long to get a lot of guns, and a lot of chamberings.

True, but the various slightly more than .308 cartridges (7.62x54, 7.62x39, .303, etc.) are still referred to as .30 caliber, not .31 caliber. While the actual bullet size of the .223 cartridge is .224", it is still a .22 caliber along with the .22-250 and others.

True, but the various slightly more than .308 cartridges (7.62x54, 7.62x39, .303, etc.) are still referred to as .30 caliber, not .31 caliber. While the actual bullet size of the .223 cartridge is .224", it is still a .22 caliber along with the .22-250 and others.

This discusion is extremely frivolous, and is sidetracking the thread. If my ( very minor ) mislabeling bothers you that much, I'll go back and edit it. But please stop sidetracking the thread.

I have multiple guns, and intend to buy more, but I do not intend to add any more rifle calibers. The only handgun caliber I will add is .44 magnum/special soon. I intend to buy both revolvers and lever guns in .44.

The only caliber I could see eliminating some day is .270, but it is the main game-getter.

I'll just say it's a lot. Too many in fact. However, I *have* in the last 7 years, in an attempt at simplification, managed to eliminate these calibers from the herd:

-.30-30 Win
-.32 acp
-.380 acp
-7mm Rem Mag
-.40 S&W
-.44 magnum
-.300 Win Mag
-.30 Carbine
-.308 Win
-10mm auto (have sold 3 guns in this caliber)
-.35 Whelen

But I added a few to offset those in the last few years (.454 Casull, 9.3x62mm, maybe others).

Times are simpler but not simple enough. Next calibers to eliminate are 25.-'06 Rem, and .22 cal airgun shotshell. I'm also probably going to eliminate .270 Win, as hard as that will be to do, UNLESS the high quality, long range .277 bullets from Berger and others are actually forthcoming soon.

Still gonna add a few though in the next few years:
-.308 Win (once again)
-6.5-.284 Norma
-(probably) 6.5 Grendel
-(possibly) .380 acp (again)
-(possiby) .22lr smoothbore
-possibly others (maybe 9x23 Win, .22-250, .30-30 Win again and 10mm auto again)

.22 LR. Winchester 9422XTR circa 1979 or so. After shootin' this baby, nothing else compares. Actually, I'm in a 1 gun lifestyle and need something that has versatility, accuracy and SHTF value. The .22 works for me...

I have been slowly but steadily eliminating unused calibers and platforms for the past several years.

I have gotten it all down to this thus far:

.22 LR
.22 WMRF
.223 / 5.56mm
.25 ACP*
.30-06 Springfield
.30-30 Winchester
.308 Winchester/7.62x51mm NATO
.32 ACP*
.357 Magnum
.38 Special
.38 S&W*
.380 ACP
.41 Rimfire*
.44 Magnum
.45 ACP
.50 Beowulf
5.45x39mm
7.62x39mm
9mm Parabellum
10mm Auto*

12 Gauge
20 Gauge*
.410 bore



* NOTE: The .25ACP, .38S&W, & .41 Rimfire are guns I keep only for sentimental value and for which I don't keep much ammo on hand at all. As soon as I can sell/trade away my last 10mm pistol and last 20ga. shotgun (no sentiment involved with those), I will have eliminated those chamberings entirely as well. And, if I can ever convince my wife to give up her P32 (which she only uses when she has to carry one of those dinky little black "formal" purses) in favor of a P3AT (which I did long ago), I can kiss .32ACP goodbye as well.

I used to handload all kinds of europeon calibers and improved cartridges. Last year I decided to get rid of all the collector guns and focus on a core group.

Pistols: .45 LC, .410, .22, 9mm
Rifles: 30 06, .308, 7.62 x 39, .22, 9mm
Shotgun: 12 gauge, ,410

My life is much simpler now.

The only possible addition to the above would be .338 WM.

.303 ('43 British-made and POF [C.I.A, which is Paki.], some Prvi).
Many sellers confuse or 'mis-state' ;) the .303 British caliber as British-made origin.
.22 and x39 are my primary plinking ammo.

Traded all 1,900 rds. of Wolf .223, for 2,000 rds. of Monarch x39 via a nice young guy in south Texas (I-35), contacted via THR "Want To Trade" etc. Only sold the Mini 14 to justify buying first Lee-Enfield.

Savage .22 / Mini 30, SKS / MN 44 / LE #4 + two #5s:) .
Ammo prices/availability were a critical factor in which guns to buy.
Really too bad that Wolf/Bear/Tiger etc do not produce .303, 30-06, .308, Swiss 7.5 or 8mm, for bulk US retail at about .25/round.

Will buy surplus .303 at max. .30/rd. (+ slow shipping) if only about 5% are mis-fires.:)

Do most of you guys with x39, 30-06, .308, .303 etc have milsurp or modern military-styled guns in these calibers?

Can't speak fro "most," only me. ;)

I have a liberal mixture of both in x39s and .308, nothing in .303, and the only .30-06s I own are Garands (so I only keep mil-surp ammo on hand in that chambering, no commercial stuff).

My x39s are mil-styled. They're short to med. range SHTF/defensive (and fun :) ) pieces. I figure the high-rate of fire might be useful in those situations while extreme accuracy would not be.

The .308s and 30-06s are bolt action hunting rifles capable of excellent accuracy at long range. This is because high rate of fire isn't really a necessity at long range, while accuracy would be. Bolt action is always the most cost effective way to achieve best accuracy.

Of course the ideal is excellent accuracy combined with high rate of fire. But that's expensive and of limited practical use in a hunting, defensive or SHTF situation.

After The Great Downsizing of '06 I only have a few:

Hee, hee, I'm in the midst of the Great Downsizing of 07-10 - taking awhile to break the emotional bonds to superfluous guns and sell them, not to mention waiting for the economy to recover enough to get out of them 2/3rds of what they're worth.

On this subject, who wants to buy a beautiful/pristine Winchester 70 Featherweight in 7mm-08, with a Leupold Vari-X IIc on it, with brass, dies, & bullets? This is a recent FN/South Carolina model 70. It's the perfect goldilocks caliber and perfect all-purpose rifle. Unfortunately, it happens to be the perfect goldilocks caliber and perfect all-purpose rifle that I don't need during or after the Great Downsizing. :)

Right now I don't have much.

22lr- because everyone should have one. My kids learn on them and they are best for squirrels.

.223Rem-In my state this is the most practical centerfire rifle round to have. Ammo is available, good for varmints and nice to start kids out for a "big" gun. My daughter owns one too.

.257Roberts- It was the first centerfire rifle I ever fired. It finally came up for sale and I paid WAY too much to get it. I have dropped 'yotes with it, but it isn't legal for deer here. I like the Mauser action too so it will stay long after I have shot out the barrel.

.410- I would like to say it is just for my daughters, but it is fun even for me to blast some rodents with. Primarily my oldest daughter's deer gun when her bow fails her.

20ga- My deer gun a rifled barrel, bipod, scope, and 200yds of range give this thing rifle like abilities. Farthest kill so far ranged at 162yds. Of course, my younger daughter uses one of these too.

I want to add to this list, but marriage and kids cuts into the budget and justifying more guns isn't easy. I plan to add a couple more though- for the kids, of course.
