And as Aron pointed out this shot is not for most people and not for most situations/conditions. Being 100% confident in your ability, given your physical and mental state at the time of the shot, is the key deciding factor in taking the shot. If you are not 100% sure then don't take it.
I would need them at under 20 yds to feel 100% confident of shot placement. I tend to get a little jacked up when the elk are coming straight at me. I have passed on this shot many times before but have heard many people say it works. I guess it comes down to whether or not you are 100% confident you can hit the mark (and being honest with yourself).
The center of the red dot is where you should aim to make a clean kill on a frontal shot.
