Now before you respond. This is my Pre-Ban Ak.
Nice gun.The answer to the question "which caliber is the best for..." shoukd be always the same:Any caliber/ammo that will do the job.It all depends on what you have to do and you personal preferences:e.g. americans are trained to use maily .223 and prefer it, I'm trained to use mainly the m43/m67 ammo(7,62x39).I would choose a ak, the american guy would choose an AR15.
If we talk about ammo, there are many factors to take in consideration, like the trajectory flatness, penetration, stopping power, weight, effective range,etc.
