Is the 17 HMR big enough for the easter bunny or should I go with the 22 mag? Happy Easter

I prefer something bigger. It's more of a revenge thing though, that dang bunny has cost me plenty over the years! Thinkin 12 slug.

God bless,

Happy Easter.

If it's hollow chocolate bunny you could get by with the 17 grain but if it's marshmallow filled I would step up to the 20 grain for the penetration!
But if you ever run up against a chocolate coyote make sure to use a .223
