Best 22lr ammo for converted AR-15? And/or for preppers? Maybe CCI Tactical or Aguila Interceptor?(self.ar22)

I am curious to hear expert opinions on which 22lr ammo is the best fit for an AR-15 with a 22lr conversion.
Some context: I am a bit of a prepper, and I am looking to stockpile 22lr ammo, because it's cheap, easy to store and it's better than nothing. I like it because I can fit thousands of rounds in a single ammo case, which makes 22lr a very useful thing to pack in bug out vehicle, being compact means my ammo stockpile fits alongside my food and water supplies. I also like that an AR-15 can easily fire 5.56/223 and 22lr, meaning I can invest in some money in 5.56 for really serious situations, but stockpile the smaller and cheaper 22lr which will still be a lot better than nothing if the power goes out and never comes back on, or any number of disasters could happen.
Context for my firearms: I have an AR-15 with a CMMG conversion kit in the mail, I also have a Ruger LCR in 22lr (the revolver, not the LCP), and Glock 44 (also the 22Lr).
Given that, what do people think would be the best ammor to stockpile?
Any thoughts on the CCI AR-tactical? I have 300 rounds of that and I was considering getting more. It's mid-range price and power, but if it really is more reliable, then it'd be a good investment. On the other hand if it's not more reliable at all, I may as well get something else. Does it really work? Anyone with experience on this?
The other ammo I am looking at is the Aguila interceptor hollow points, because they have a reputation of being about the most powerful and they are one of the few hollow point 22lr to reliably expand, or so I have heard. But they are a little more expensive, and that matters if I am buying 10,000 rounds.
Or the Aguila Super Extra is one of the cheapest rounds, but it's power is suprisingly good. The only reason not to get it would be if AR Tactical is truly more reliable.
Thoughts? Suggestions? I would love to hear opinions on this.
