49 lb rabbit = alot of good stew :D

I'd prolly just stick to my 10/22.

You could most likely run that thing down and take it out with whatever is at hand. :rolleyes:

With that being said if we aren't talking head shots i'd go for a shotgun with some #2's or a bit bigger maybe BB. For head shots i'm sure a .22lr would do the trick. i'd stick w/ velociters for the reason just b/c though.

Dude an ar15 loaded up with some of my 60 grain V-max's with 23.6 grains of XMR-2015 would turn those things vitals INTO stew. I dont think I could kill that thing though. It seems like it would be all fat and little meat.

.270 Winchester loaded with Speer 100 grain HPs and 49.0 grains of IMR 4895 comes to mind.... (Off the top of my head, I think that load is doing about 3,500 fps.) It is amazingly explosive.

I was thinking more along the lines of having something to eat.......

Yeah true, but my dogs would think it'd be a fun chew toy.

Rabbit fat could be tasty.

Bet you could cook taters in it. Potatos cooked in critter grease are usually awesome, if you've never had duck drippin' spuds you've never truely lived.

Grym, I know my mutts wouldn't have any prob. What with the hogs we target and the random trashing on coon, possum and the relentless BEAVERS that will poke numerous holes in every dog they get a tooth on... them big bunnies would be a cake walk...:eek:

I figured as much, but I couldn't resist writing ".... doin' all the chewin'!" :)

I don't think you would have to shoot that rabbit... looks like it's just a few minutes away from a full on coronary failure
