I’ve got a Rossi levergun in 357...specifically got it to pair with a 357 revolver I have.

My personal choice would be a modern Mauser-style bolt rifle in .308 or .30-06, with a shorter (16"-20") barrel, and the option of both a scope and iron sights.

Something like a Ruger M77 RSI or Scout, or a CZ 550/557 Carbine.

Savage Model 99 in 300 Savage

Big enough for serious work, yet small enough for fun.

If only they still made them. Back when, they also had 308 and 358.

My youngest stepson's deer rifle is a 1970s Savage 99 in .308 that he inherited from his grandfather. It's a nice, handy rifle.

^^^^ I still kick myself for not grabbing that one in 358 I came across in 1982. The 99C with detachable magazine in 308 may be the answer the OP was looking for.

The rotary magazine 99s are reportedly better.

And IIRC, one could top off the rotary magazine in the 99 pretty easily. Per the internet, production of them stopped in '98.

Certainly more highly valued, but I cannot speak to better.

Still readily available at a wide range of price points and chamberings: 243, 250 Sav, 303 Sav, 22 high, etc...

I love my 1953. It is a hand me down from my grandfather and then father, so it holds sentimental value to me. I still use it, but the stock has developed a small crack, so I reserve it for special moments. I want my daughter and if God so blesses me, my grandchild to have this rifle.

It has served me well, still has fine accuracy. Ammo availability is good.
Bolt throw is exceptional, fast locktime...still looks new.

It weathered the last 33 years, a tad better than I have.

I'd pick a good lever action in .45-70. I can download it to be less punishing, or I can buy/build ammo with which I can kill anything in North America (arguably just about anything in the world that I'd have reason to kill).

If I was going the route of just one I'd send it off to that place that custom-slicks the new Marlins to well beyond any factory standard and just be happy.
