I suppose you need a .30-40 Krag...

Our first .30 main battle rifle. First bolt. First smokeless powder. Designed as a single shot repeater with a built-in magazine for urgent rapid fire. Butter-smooth action and a graceful beauty.

My first antique...

If you don't have a Mosin-Nagant, that is a very inexpensive addition to any collection. They are very functional, high powered centerfire rifles, with, still, affordable ammo readily available. The don't have any bells and whistles, not even a functional safety, and it is difficult to mount a modern scope on one, but they are affordable, fun and historic.

My favorite rifle is a Voere bolt action in .06, built on a large ring Mauser action. I can shoot the nuts off a gnat with that one, and select which one to take first. (I do lie a little sometimes, but it is a nice rifle)

I want an enfield, a garand, m1a, and a kraig. Those are top of my list, I enjoy my 1934 mosin, cheap big boom fun.

Like said above my sks is a hoot to shoot along with the EBR, but those are a plenty.

I traded a beat up .44mag for a Remington made 1903A3 that was already in a beautiful maple stock, so I had it drilled and tapped. Installed leupold base, added a Burris FFII 3x9 scope in leupold rings. Had to have the bolt handle shaved to clear the scope, which it barely does but it does. It was the first caliber I ever reloaded. Its a beautiful gun and a highly accurate one as well. Its a special gun to me and among all of my 20+ guns, its my favorite.

I kind of like my SA NM M1A a little but by favorite rifle is the first one I ever bought on my own, a Winchester 94. I have had this rifle for 40 years and still love shooting it.

My favorite (at least right now) is my Model 640 Husqvarna made on the Model 96 action in 8x57 Mauser. It is extremely accurate consistantly shooting sub MOA groups with 180 grain and 200 grain handloads.

I've probably owned more handguns over the years then I have rifles but out of the ones that I have owned the ones that come to mind were a Ruger M-77 in 220 Swift, and a Savage 99 in 300 Savage ctg. I think if you can find a Savage 99 in 308 Win or even 243 Win it'd be an awesome woods gun that'd still give you quite a bit of range.
Of course after doing a bit of research and reading my next high power rifle will be in 25-06 Remington. Not sure which one yet but that's the cartridge that I want to go with because it has low recoil, can be used for large varmints with lighter bullets and deer(and even elk) with heavier bullets and it's just "odd" enough for me to like it but still "standard" enough to find ammo and reloading stuff for it. ;)

A standard action SAKO would be hard to beat for those uses. A heavy barrel Ruger M-77 is also a good choice.
