42. 7.62x54 & 7.92 Mauser
Both of these rounds are extremely cheap and plentiful, along with the rifles that shoot them. The Mosin Nagant in 7.62x54 can be had for about $100 in great shape. It's an old bolt action rifle that's very accurate, more so with optics. The ammunition can be had as cheap as $30/ 440 round sealed tin. Steel core Czech ammunition is nearly as cheap at $70/ 800 rounds. Yugoslav, Romanian, Czech, and German Mauser 98 variants can be had for $100-$200 or so. The ammunition is just as cheap, or cheaper, than the 7.62x54. Conceivably, you could purchase a Mosin Nagant carbine with sling, ammo pouches, cleaning kit, and 800 rounds of ammunition for less than $200. That's a lot of security.

Don't forget canned goods as well. If something were to break out, the groceries would be picked clean or limited by a government mandated movement restriction and/or registration. Some canned staples, especially pinto and other beans, are going for 3 cans for a buck. Store canned food, vitamins, a good first aid kit, flashlights, a battery powered radio, batteries, and plenty of water for drinking and hygiene. Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
