I know of a guy who killed one with a .22 LR pistol, according to all sources (poaching, out of season, close range). We used to kill hogs with a single shot, 22 rifle. In Africa they kill elephants with AK's and FMJ ammo. Any caliber will do at close range, against something standing still.
My cousing who killed one with a 4" .357 used all his ammo (12 rds) - about the same way they kill the elephants with AKs.
