Default Best bolt-action

What are people's opinion? Overall, or do one for each kind of caliber range (ie. small 22lr up to big game cartridges). Just thought id see people's ideas

My .22lr are used for plinking, My sons 1969 Romanian trainer is awesome, My Old 1952 JC Higgins is 100% reliable and accurate.
.223, .204, Nothing beats a CZ 527 Micro Mauser.
Medium bore, again, a Mauser.
Large bore, Mauser again. A .416 Rigby is a rifle I want.
