I'd suggest your friend treat the Old Army like it's a bow, keep shots close (say 25 yards or a bit more) and shoot only when you have the perfect shot placement. If he's experienced hunting hogs, he'll know how to kill them and should not have a problem. Unlike the bow, he's got a fast second shot in case piggie runs right at him.

Sounds like fun to me! Good luck, have contemplated the same thing myself.

See attached picture. This from www.texasboars.com - lots of good information there.

Thing to remember, hogs are mostly guts behind the front shoulder, don't have big lungs like a deer. With a a handgun and cast bullet, I like to break the shoulder. With a scoped rifle, I shoot for head or neck (but we're almost always hunting over bait in TX.
