If limited to one rifle and cartridge I would have to choose the 30/06. Ammo is available universally and there are tons of differnt factory loads. With the right bullet you can take down most anything with proper bullet placement.

I own a .308 and it does a great job for deer. The 30/06 is great for elk.

the good ole .30-06 I have used mine to take numerous deer. My second choice would be my .45-70 with the right bullets you can take any game on any continent.
