    It all depends on what you are going to use it for. Higher caliber guns make more damage and are the best when dealing with amoured vehicles and other stuff on the ground. Lower calibers are sufficient against air targets.
    Lower calibers tends to have a highter rate of fire which is very important when you are trying to kill another fighter doing evasive maneuvers.
    Lower calibers are also lighter so you can carry a higher amount of bullets.
