22-Long Rifle. There's billions of them around and they store and carry compact.

Take a good look at my avatar, I make all of my black powder ammo from scratch & my 1858 loves the stuff. I'd say an 1858 revolver paired with its carbine counterpart would be THE weapon setup to have after shtf.

+1 Same one for me on this one . Horizontal bodies at 50 yards should keep them back . Remember even a small cal like a .22 can be deadly if properly placed and carry 1000 of them rounds in a 1 gallon milk jug

I think less important isthe 12 g though. There will be a lot of shells around but i think 90% of them will be bird shot. And that's good for one thing only, the bird-pocalypse.

I would put .22 lr on there but that's also a smei-useless round.
quiet = yes
more ammo = yes
but doesn't hit hard enough to kill much above small dogs and cats.

The best round will be whatever you have on your person at the time the SHTF so you can get the next "best round"....although the Guiness does have its appeal.

Other consideration may be an ammo round you can use again and again such as a bow and arrow. Seemed to work well for Native Americans.
