Lots of very good suggestins hre for ya, and a few that I don't agree with. But in my business we actually had to eveluate rifles best suited for
such a situation that you explained, and our results, after nearly a year of various comparisons, was the Ruger Mini-14.
Now I know that lots of people have a fierce loyalty towards their favorite weapons of choice, and I'm not posting here in order to either start, nor
engage in an arguments for or against, but after analyzing all of our results, the Ruger Mini-14 won out for the purest, all around survival
Please don't confuse my post as saying it's thre "best" rifle around, or the best rifle for war, et cetera. This was to establish the best all
around "Survival rifle"
Hope this helps.
