Include caliber and bullet weight.
Have you shot any of the big magnums?
How much do you weigh?
Your tolerance for and ability to handle recoil without flinching has a lot to do with what would be the "best answers" to the "best caliber".
Bigger and faster is always better, but only if you don't dread pulling the trigger.
You won't become a proficient long range shooter without a lot of practice and that means a lot of practice at dealing with the recoil.
