    Two Calibers.

    Hypothetical Question I Know - But if we were only allowed to own two calibres of gun which would you choose, I realise that everyone is after different quarry in different parts of the country etc but if you had to cover all options so to speak what would you go for, if it was three calibres I think the choice would easy(ish) but two im not so sure.
    HMR and 308 ? .22L/R and 243 ? Hornet and ??? Two Wildcat Rounds ?
    This topic came up in conversation the other night and I still cant decide.

    I have neither at the moment but I'd go 6mm br and one of the 7mm (7x57 or 7x64).

    For a long time, I only had two calibres:
    A .22LR and a 25.06
    Covered all bases really.

    .22LR and errr.........................um................I'm not 100% sure.

    It would depend upon what else other than sall vermin I was going to be shooting.

    ​You are certainly right in thinking that a choice of 3 would be easier though
