    This today, it would be:

    7mm Remington Magnum
    338 Winchester
    416 Ruger

    Tomorrow may be different. Though, the middle choice seems to remain consistent. The other two have substantial competition.

    Pretty damn solid choices there! Especially if that 45 colt is in a strong frame like a Freedom Arms. Often overlooked as a bear defense cartridge, but properly loaded in a proper handgun, they are devastating.

    It’s landowner deer season here now (and open season on coyote) so at the moment it’s:

    .45-70 (Marlin 1895 SBL)
    .30-06 (pre-War Model 70 — only when there’s NO chance of rain)
    .45 Colt (Ruger stainless Bisley, occasionally Winchester (Miroku) 92)

    So, assuming these choices are only for an African safari, I'd choose:
    7mm-08 with 150/160 pills for everything up to impala/blesbok/springbok
    338 WM with 250 pills for zebra, kudu, gemsbok, Black and Blue Wildebeest and the like
    416 RM with 400 grainers for eland and buff

    For everything in NA, my choices would be different.

    Today’s choice 30-06, 375 h&h, 470. Last week the 6.5 Swede might have misplaced the 470

    Also I saw a pre war M70 30-06 at a gun store last winter for $1050, but I didn’t have it so couldn’t buy it

    This is worse than "Who are your favorite 3 grandkids?" I have 12 of those. This is much worse because the number if my rifles is much larger. If I have to chose: 7X64 Breneke, 375 H&H, .470 NE. Don't even ask about my kids.

    If it was original and decent shape I would have went out and sold myself to old widow women at the retirement home before I walked away from that! One must get his priorities in line Wyatt!

    I know! Maybe I could have sold some guns or my truck (91 f250) for it but it didn’t last long. At least I am not pre 64less I still have my 1958 featherweight 30-06

    Were l to pick my personal favorites
    :
    magnum .375 by Holland and Holland , (preferably built on a Brevex rifle mechanism ( or " action " ) )
    7 millimeter Remington magnum
    12 bore Astra side by side shot-gun .

    Depending on my whims , the bottom two will change ( although a 12 bore must always be present in my list of choices ) , but the .375 bore will always stay at the top of my list of preferences.
