Hypothetically, if you had to pick just one caliber for everything what would it be? Lets say sub 500 yards and elk/moose/caribou/muleys/whitetails and speed goats. No reloading so factory ammo availability is a must. AND GO!!!!

caliber & cartridge would be a toss up between several. In fact there is probably several calibers that would be fine for any of the above. I'd probably say 7mm-08 or .308. My all around "if you could only have one" is a 12ga shotgun. Small game, waterfowl, big game...12ga can do it all.

.300WinMag, 300WSM and 7mmRemMag are great options. I love my .270, 7mm08 and .308 but not sure I would choose any of them for a moose at 500 yards with factory ammo.

Split between a 30-06 and a 7rm but I think I would go with the 06 if I could only have one. I’m not aware of another caliber that has such a wide selection of factory ammo available l.
