Being somewhat of a gun enthusiast I will tell you that their Is NO need to go super expensive you can get a great quality rifle for $300-$700(rifles
scopes are another story) depending on caliber and maker, that being said If you are looking for a survival gun be sure to choose a rifle that has a
very highly produced round, 30-06 or 30-30 are great choices for short to mid range are some of the worlds most produced caliber.
For long range 7mm mag or my personal favorite the 300 win/mag more kick but great accuracy are good choices.
Now with ALL of that said you need also to take into account the ability to properly maintain your gun, in a survival situation that may be difficult
and if that is something you are worried about that absolutely do NOT buy a high powered rifle like the 7mm or 300win, maintenance is crucial for a
gun like that. if you are looking for reliable rifle, of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the classic AK-47/Kalashnikov, VERY reliable
you can literally treat these guns like crap and they will still fire great, also the sks is a good choice. you will get endless opinions with a topic
like this so good luck
oh yeah and you ain't killin' crap with a 22lr other than small game and varmint.
