As you stated - the variables are numerous for this type of situation. Anywhere from the location of the a animal, distance and type of injury.

I have dispatched a lot of animals over my career as a humane law enforcement officer and reserve deputy sheriff. I've used all of the tools allotted to me over the course of those years. My service pistol (.40 S&W), back up (9mm), 12 Guage and a .22 caliber rifle.

All have been affective. Most of the time it's not necessarily the caliber but the location of the shot that is most important. The correct shot placement can make up for a less than perfect weapons platform.
