308 is the easy answer to the broad question IMO.

For a pure SHTF gun/ammo/scenario I would limit it to common easy to get calibers that you can get in bulk. Today there isn't much out there to get in the common 5.56, 7.62 Nato, and 7.62x39. You might have better luck getting the good old .30-06, but I wouldn't count on it.

Guns to consider are the AR type, AK type, lever action type, and perhaps a good bolt gun or if money isn't an problem an M1A.

Personally I would rather have...

AR15
M1A
Winchester 94.


However if you are limited in only the two calibers you list. I would go with the 7.62 over the .30-06 even though I love the M1 and cartridge.

I've found that 30-06 and .270 is plentiful in my area and I wonder how much .308 you could find in a SHTF situation.

If you had to rely on military for .308 surplus what grain do they use?

Thinking about something in a Savage bolt gun.

SHTF is like Fire Insurance - If you wait 'till you smell smoke to worry about gettin' your policy in force?
