    Only rifle I have is a .223/5.56 Rock River. Only other desire is a Bolt in .308 for shooting LR at the range. Like to have a Ruger Precision but will probably just watch the Black Friday sales for a Remington SP..........

     My Sako Vixen in 222. First centrefire rifle I ever bought. Have shot everything from rabbits and magpies through to deer and up to wild cattle/bulls. Never let me down.

    Runner ups are my 204's, 243 and 7mm08 not in any order of preference.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Right now for me .308 as I am still in love with my FAL. Then it would be .30-06 for "serious" work, then 5.56 and 7.62 x 39.

    When I hunted, I fell in love with the non-magnum 7MM's. My favorite is my custom Mauser .284 Win. Followed closely by my 7MM-08.
    If I stared to hunt again, I'd have to try one of the old lever guns! Either the 1881 Marlin in .40-60 or one of the Savage 1899's, probably the .38-55!

    By #, .223/5.56, but its not a favorite.  Other calibers, I have no duplicates in rifles except .44 mag, so I guess I have to go with that per the OP description.  My personal favorite to shoot?  .45-70.  THUMP.

    I can't say that I have a favorite but I have more than one in 30-06. It would depend on what I was going to use it for what one I would use.

    Caliber I have the most of apart from the .729  and have done for 30 plus years is 6.5.
     Favourite cartridge in that caliber, undoubtedly the modern rifles chambered for 6.5x55 although I had a Carl Gustaf or two in my time.

    Do you only have 12 guage shotguns or do you have other gauges as well?
