He wraps his left hand pretty much around the barrels, leaving a sight line. Pulls down and back while leaning forward. Similarity to a Weaver stance with a Redhawk or a Casull. Loads his own ammo, for affordability, and practices a good bit. Hunts feral hogs with it, on occasion.

A firm grip with the off hand, and leaning into the gun is the preferred method for speed shooting heavy recoiling rifles. Especially the leaning in to it part!

Actually good to hear someone who doesn't hold the second barrel as a backup. Double rifles in elephant calibers are neat, having advantages over bolt guns in several ways. Not for the budget minded, though!

I think the one-two punch (with a PH as back up) would be pretty effective, once you got good at it.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
