wouldn't the best "survival caliber" be the one you are most likely to find on other persons?
I'm thinking 9mm would be a good choice?
if your survival depends on taking down wild game for food then its whatever tool you have to do it with. But I certainly would never hunt deer with a .17, 22lr, or 9mm. The idea of a survival gun is over-rated, I would pick something for better suited for self defense and learn to hunt other ways conserving ammo as much as possible.
lightweight, cheap, strong... pick 2
