.308 for long range target shooting / hunting / defense.

.45ACP because my 1911s need to eat.

.22lr for plinking / small game hunting, because it's cheap.

Boy, I'd have to retire a lot of my guns, but if forced to choose, it'd be:

.45 ACP
.308
.223

Most of my CCW guns are 9mm, but I love my USP45c.

Rifles only:
1. 30-06, I'm old school like that I guess and it gets my vote as the best all around cartridge of all time.
2. .22 It should be a rule that everyone owns a 22 :)
3. .243 From the little the the mid-size game this cartridge can get the job done.

Pistols:
1. .45ACP Come on, it's a 45!
2. .357 My revolver just loves to sling magnums.
3. .22 See above :)

If I could only have 3 period I'd have to say the 30-06, the .45ACP, and a .22.

  • .308 (7.62x51) because its such an effective combat round, still readily available and reasonably priced (in bulk purchases)
  • .45 ACP because I believe it's the best handgun caliber ever
  • .22 for varmint control and small animal hunting
  • and (if I can sneak a 4th one in) 12 Gauge for everything else

Hello all



RON L here = SERESURPLUS



I'm gonna cheat like that one other fella did and Quote 3 Pistol and 3 rifle calibers:


Pistol:

9MMLuger
45ACP
.22LR

These three as I have guns to fire them, they have always worked for me and I can hit what I aim at with them? LOL .22 cuz as the other fellow said, ya gotta have a 22?


Rifle

.308 7.62X51

7.62X39

.22LR

These have served me all my life, I like many weapons chambered in them and I do hit what I am aiming at with these and Diddo on the needing .22lr always!


If you will notice, all 6 of th 3 Fav calibers I can walk into most places and Buy a box, Not pay an arm and a leg and I don't have to worry about if they will work?

Since this is a rifle discussion my three would be-----
.22 lr, .223, and .30-06. With the correct bullets and reloading I would tackle anything on earth.
