The 375 WBy thread got me thinking of my favorite hunting cartridges off all time.

Here are mine:

22 LR
9.3x62 (followed close my a 375 wby--less bark with the 9.3)
450/400 3" (really it was the gun it was in--but was a sweet shooting as they come)

I was about to start a thread similar to this one. It is hard for me to choose between the .222 Remington and the .22-250 for the .22's.

Here are my faves:

.222 Remington
.270 Win
.30-06 Spfld.
 
If I HAVE to narrow it down to only 3, it would be:
8x68 S
9,3x64 mm
.450 Rigby Rimless
 
I have hunted with a wide variety of calibres and rifles. But when it comes to the big ones their where the occasional shot besides my own 416Rigby and 404Jeffrey. Furthermore most of us I am sure also don’t get to hunt that ofthen with them. So to conclude even if I love my 416Rigby it comes down to two rifles.
300Win Mag
22-250
The perfect bean field couple loaded with Barnes X. From Springbuck to eland.
 
300 Win Mag, 7mm Mag, and 223 Win
 
.308 Winchester
.300 Weatherby Magnum
.450 Ackley Magnum

I only left .22 Magnum and .220 Swift off the list out of respect for 505ED's limit!! And my .22lr's - can't be without them...
 
It should be no surprise to anybody that my two all time favourites are the 7x57 and the 404J but I would have to add the 20VarTarg for the small stuff and nobody should be without a 22LR and a 12 guage sxs.

.22-250
.300 Wby, love it - the ultimate all-round NA and plains game round
.416 Rigby, but I need more real-world experience with it still

Also it's hard to leave out the .257 Wby. Great pronghorn & deer round

I would be interested in it if you pass. Please send me the info on the gun shop if you do not buy it. I have the needed ammo and brass.
