Shot placement is most important on a tough ole' hog.
Powerbelt has a great web site that lists ballistics for their bullets using 100 and 150 grains of pyrodex using a 28" barrel.
At 100 grains and at 100 yards that 348 grain slug is moving about 1300 fps. More than enough to stop a pig.
I'd ask traditions if you can use the pellets - it should be in the owners manual - they'll send you one if you do not have one.
You do not need to pack the 50 grain pellets - it crushes the hole in the middle that helps proper ignition of the pellet.
Good luck with yer smokepole.
