I was reading Building a Rifle Battery and The Hunting Rifle Battery on ChuckHawks.com and it got me thinking.
Just for interest really- putting aside gun collecting for its own sake, if you were to put together the ideal battery of rifles for shooting game around the world, what would you put in it?
I currently own a 17 HMR and a 6.5x55 SE, so getting all dewey eyed and wistful I guess I hope to build something like this-
.17HMR- varmints and short range predators
6.5x55SE- most antlered game and long range predator
.300 Win Mag- boar and large/dangerous thin skinned game, plus long range deer
.375 H&H- Thick skinned large/dangerous game
Maybe if I hadn't already got the .17HMR I would plan on a .22LR and a .223, but I do love shooting my HMR so I think I am happy with that selection.
Assuming this thread hasn't been done before (I couldn't find one!) what would you put in yours?
