I have seen a .22 drop animals from cats to bovines with a single shot to the brain from the front/top of the skull. All you need.

Agreed. When I worked at my grandfather's meat shop all I used was a .22 mag to drop even the biggest pigs and bulls with the exception of one boar that took 6 shots from the 2# and 3 from a 30-30 point blank

Most painless way? Probably use a gun with the softest recoil pad....

The correct answer is what ever you shot the critter with in the first place given that you were using and appropriate cartridge/platform. There not a deer combo made that won't finish a deer off with a shot to the head. There's not a bear combo made that won't finish a bear off with a shot to the head. There not a bunny combo made that won't finish a bunny with a shot to the head.

Worrying about all that other stuff is pure nonsense which for the OP, is why you are suspected of being a troll. Nonsense in, nonsense out.
