.177 is the cheepest and very accurate, .25 pellets are expensive and sometimes hard to find. I like the .22 for hunting.

177 is by far the most popular so there are many options available including lots of very accurate guns and everything from under $100 up to thousands.

22 and 25 are much less standard so there will be fewer options and they will usually be more expensive.

Noise probably doesn't make much difference, but I don't have experience with 22 & 25. A spring gun will be A LOT quieter than pre-charged (tank) or single stroke pneumatic (SSP). On rifles a sight extending "bloop" tube will change the sound from a loud pop to a softer bloop, so it may not sound like a gun.

One more thing to think about. Some states classify "high power" airguns as firearms, so all licensing and transfer rules apply. In IL anything over .177 caliber or shooting faster than 800 fps (?) counts as a firearm.

There are a number of spring/air guns that can be had with multiple barrels.  Don't recall the brand but have seen them at Cabella's  fairly cheaply.

.22 best all rounder.
Better in the wind than a 177.
Better for hunting than a 177
This one is mine. The 50 yard grouping was 6 shots ( last photo). The second photo was duplicating the test target outdoors at 25 yards.
The 50 yard grouping is 6 shots, outdoors on a birchwood casey target.
The test target is 23 yards indoors.
 
The 50 yard grouping did as well or better than the 23 yard indoor test target.
