what 3 calibers?

Had a discussion with a few buddies last night and thought i would pass it on and ask everyone. With the exception of shotguns, what three calibers of rifle would you own to hunt with? Only pick 3.

22/250----7mm Rem Mag---.338 Win Mag...those would take care of everything and anything that walks on the North American continent...and you did say rifles, that's why I didn't use the .22mag, I could always load the 22/250 down to almost the same velocity if I wanted..those three will work...
