I like the 7mm. It shoots flatter than my .06 and the recoil is similar. Both are very good and ammo is everywhere.

I like the 30-06..can shoot 100 gr.s up to 220 gr.s , and handles just about all game except for the really dangerous stuff. You can buy ammo anywhere , tons of cheap surplus, use the hi energy stuff for a little more speed, and firearms for it are easy to come buy.

Yeah, a Wby., its called a 257 Wby. magnum and it would be my all around choice for North American hunting, if I had a choice of one caliber.  While, truly designated a 25 caliber bullet, it actually measures exactly 6.53 mm.  Capable on long distance shots with great accuracy and has the power and bullet selection to take down the biggest game on the continent.  Kick is not that bad and it can be purchased in a variety of brands to suit your taste from a Vanguard on up to a Blaser.

If forced, I'd probably be o.k. with any magnum chambering in 7mm - .338 caliber... BUT, I'd hate to know I had to go through life being forced to own only 1 rifle!

Unfortunately, I have the same fears of what the future may bring, bud.

if it comes to that i am head back west cause its hell to find a man in the mountains especially if someone who is looking for you doesnt have a clue of where they are, lots of U.N.  battalions will get wiped out in the rocky mountains when it comes to that point of taking away our guns

Shot placement is key and I am not too interested in the really big and dangerous stuff anyway.

Out of the choices offered, I'd go with a 308 (however, it was a tough call between that and my 280Rem).

This is an old thread but it deserves to be reviewed just to see how fast the country is sliding backwards, considering the ammunition situation in America today.

30-06 is my sentimental favorite followed closely by the .308.
Up here in Maine in all but a very few situations 500 yards is considered long range so .30 caliber has it covered pretty well. 
I also have a big soft spot for the .303 British and I'm growing quite fond of the 6.5x55 lately.

I am still impressed with my 280Rem.
 
That having been said, my new 6.5x47 is rapidly moving toward the top of the list.

We are so restricted on the amount of firearms we can own. So many calibres I would like to own, but if could only have one, it would be the trusty old 30-06. For what I can afford to hunt, I don't  need anything else.

Hows the switch barrels stuff work overthere Glock?  Your R8 can accomidate many, does each barrel have to be registered? or just the gun?

I had to vote for the '06. Not because it is the best of those listed (but it WILL do just about everything), but because it has a history of just plain working! I have shot coyotes with 110gr bullets out of one, and I have shot a Bison with 220gr bullets out of one... And a lot of stuff in between.

  That being said, I own other calibers now. My 7-08 will probably get get the nod for most hunting situations, as it only weighs 9.5lbs. But if I ever draw a elk tag again, my 300 WSM is probably coming out of the safe.

You have to apply for a license for each and every barrel, which means you have to motivate each calibre. If you are not registered as a Dedicated Hunter or Dedicated Sportsman you may only own 4 Firearms, you may also only be in possesion of 200 rounds per weapon. 2.4 kilograms of propellant and 2000 primers
 
So 1 weapon for self defense (handgun or shotgun) and 3 other weapons.
 
As a dedicated Hunter I may have 1 weapon for self defense and as many hunting rifles as i can motivate, you really have to get clever to own 2 rifles in the same calibre. But I have to be a member of a Hunting Organization, and participate in one shooting event and one hunt a year. 
 
If you want to rebarrel a rifle you have to have a registered Gunsmith scrap the old one, and apply for a license for a new barrel. Once its approved then the gunsmith can install it for you.
 
A Dedicated Sportsman may own a self defense handgun and then own more handguns for the shooting competitions he is involved in, and a semi auto rifle and semi shotgun for 3 gun shoots. But must get 6 points a year by particapating in shooting events, one point for a Cub shoot or two points for a League shoot. But if he uses a sport gun to defend himself, he will be arrested and has to prove why he didn't use his self defense weapon.
 
To be honest its a big pain in the but and drives me madLoco
