    Beautiful.

    I love looking at Schutzen's, but don't think I'll ever spend the money on one. My LGS had one about 5 years ago. I handled it, drooled a bit, and then looked at the price tag an burst into tears. It didn't sit on the shelf very long.

    Wow that is an awesome looking rifle. Thanks for the link that is just what I needed!

    My not nearly as pretty 8.15x46R Mauser Gewehr 98. I am pretty sure its of interwar vintage, 1920's.

    You remembered the 10.35mm Ordinanza (I had to look that one up) and forgot the .38 S&W?

    Oh, come on now. You’ve got to give me a break, I have so many.
    But it’s hard to forget that you have an Italian 1889 Bodeo revolver.

    Fortunately, there are only three caliber that I reload. Those are .380, .38 Sp/.357 Mag, and .243. That being said, I stockpile those cartridges as well as the following:
    .22LR/Mag
    .25 ACP
    .32 ACP
    .32-20
    7.62 x 39 and
    12 gauge.
    The .25, .32, and the .32-20 aren't really shot at all anymore but I keep a couple of boxes for each on hand - JIC.

    Actually the question was how many different cartridges it takes to load all your guns.

    But specific to your question I reload .38 WCF.

    Also have some guns I don't have cartridges for. .41 Rimfire Short for instance.

    I'm not about to try to list all the calibers I own. I'm sure I would miss a bunch anyway.

    The weakest chambering I have is .22 Short and the strongest is .404 Jeffery.

    The number of chamberings was cut roughly in half within the last 1 or 1&1/2 half years:
    .22 LR.
    32 acp.
    9mm Luger.
    7.62x39

    c1ogden said "...inexpensive calibers for the fun guns".
    Now I only own the fun guns-and seldom shooting past 25-30 yards doesn't require me to carry any rifles needed by the late (Navy Seal) Chris Kyle.

    256 win mag
    6.8spc
    270 win

    Some of you guys are dead serious--I look like a piker in comparison.

    Instead of listing what I have, I will list what I have recently divested myself of:
    .41 mag
    .44 Spl/ .44Mag
    .308

    And maybe more to follow.

    I intentionally keep my list as short as I can, and I tend towards cartridges that are likely to be around and in good suppy when my kids are as old as I am (assuming we as a society have enough sense not to allow the anti's to have their way). I won't NOT buy a gun because it's a new-to-me cartridge, but if the gun I want was offered in one of the mainstream cartridges, I'll take that route. And I go with chamberings that offer a lot of factory ammo choices, including accurate target loads for the rifles, and affordable quality ammo for the handguns.

    IMO, for 99% of shooters and 99% of situations, these rounds can get the job done just as well as the latest flavor-of-the-month chambering. My current mainstream cartridges:
    22 LR
    22 Magnum
    .223
    .308
    9 x 19 mm
    45 ACP
    .38
    .357
    20 gauge
    12 gauge

    There are some impressive lists here.
    Those listing all three of the 22’s, short, Long, and Long rifle. You actually have a gun in all three chambering.? Even more impressive.

    I own 50 or more firearms, but not in that array of cartridge chambering. Like the Op many are just duplicate calibers.

    That list will change regularly, but the volume stays the same because I run out of cabinet space. the only duplicates are the .22lr(3), 9mm and(2), and the 6.5 Grendel(1.5).

    .22 Short/Long Rifle
    .32 ACP/.32 S&W Short/.32 S&W Long/.32 H&R Magnum (All will chamber in the same gun, an NEF R73. Sweet piece.)
    .38 Special
    .357 Mag.
    .45 ACP

    Whoah, way more than I thought I did, and I have multiples of a lot of them. I often hesitate for buying a gun in a new chambering because I don't want to start stocking a new caliber, but I guess that only applies philosophically rather than actually in practice...
