    22LR, 22-250, 25-06, 6.5x55, 7x57, 308, 270 WSM, 300 WSM, 45-70, 338 Lapua. That would be a very well ballenced battery that would have you coverd from rabbit at 10 feet to elephant at 500 yd. Gatta have a big bore lever gun for the brush, an up close and a far off varmint gun, an all around 308 semi auto rifle, a 25-06 because pronghorn won't let you get close, a 7x57 and a 6.5x55 because they are both so darn versitle in the feild and SOOO much fun to shoot, a 270 wsm for when you need hella trajectory and a 300 for when you need hella power in a compact package, and no battery of guns is complete without a massivly overpowerd 338 cal that will quickly drop anything on the planet.

    .17 Rem (predators)
    .220 Swift (Varmints to 700 yards)
    6mm-06AI (Varmints and target to 1,000 yards or more)
    .25-06 Rem (Medium Game)
    .308 Win. (Defense)
    8mm Rem Mag (big game)
    .350 Rem Mag (pigs)
    .375 Ultra (dangerous game)
    .45-70 (big game in heavy brush)
    .50 BMG (fun)

    I have all but the 6mm-06, which I plan to build in the form of a 28" heavy barrel on a Rem. 700 Action.

    I own many others, but if I could only keep 10 centerfire rifle cartridges, these would be them.
