It has to shoot minute of elephant. Basically it has to hit a football sized target (brain) at 25 yards. I imagine that anything close to putting both barrels into 2-3 inches at 50 yards would satisfy most elephant hunters. Hunting elephant is an up close and personal sport with most hunters going for a brain shot inside of about 25 yards or so.
