darkgael, it's a list of chamberings, within the range of calibers, from which to pick one - just exactly as the OP clearly said. In my opinion. People just aren't reading - they're posting without reading - and now trying to say it was unclear.

well....maybe...not

Well..... folk are not doing exactly what you would like them to do.... it is an interesting thread in any case. Y'know....I just went back and looked.... if the instruction was to pick one caliber... "one from each group..... which calibers would you choose" .... (not which chambering), of the 77 responses, there are only three (23, 32. 39) wherein the writers chose "calibers".
Probably have too much time on my hands. Well..gotta do some reloading. Match coming up. Gonna need a couple hundred calibers to practice with and more for the match.

223 wylde
243 win
300 weatherby mag
8 mauser
9 nato
44 mag
45 70.

but those lists kindof suck. if I was allowed any 7 from the entire list then I would cut 44 mag and 8 mauser and add 45ACP and 6.5 grendel... I would probably also cut 45-70 for 30-06 but either one is kindof a wash.
