    Great selection and will take you around the world. Can even get that buffalo you’ve been wanting!

    Like the way you think if I do that can get at least 3 more trips in lol
    But then I wouldn’t have the pleasure of deliberations over riflestyle/caliber/make for each trip.

    So keep the 7x57. I’m infatuated with my 7mm-08 I understand.
    Keep the .375 H&H, I’m wanting to get one.

    That’s hunting taken care of.

    You will find there are one or 2 others there that you need to keep. Maybe for family or whatever reason makes you happy.

    I only have 7 centrefire calibres , I’d get more but sometimes it is easier to know which one you would always grab first for a local hunt where most rifles will suffice. But there is nothing wrong wit him using my .458 on a pig. I need to practice and use it well being what it is. Nothing wrong with overkill in ethical hunting.

    I use my Browning A Bolt .338 in Colorado for elk and deer. No moose tag yet. I have a Pachmyer? Decelerator recoil pad on it and the recoil is like my .270 Win., or thereabouts. Shoots straight and kills quickly!
