My personal 5 would be:

9mm - Relatively inexpensive and pretty common.
45. ACP - I've aways been a .45 fan.
.223 - Same as 9mm: relatively inexpensive and common.
12 gauge - Very common and wide variety of loads.
30-06 - Great range.

Brilliant selection.

I'd have to include the odd ball 7.7mm Japanese. I just can't let go of my Grandpa's prized WWII trophy. That and it's PAINFULLY fun to shoot. (the story behind how he got it alone gets it on the list)

The others would be:
.22LR
.45acp
.308
12ga
