its all about shot placement.. not saying you should always use a 223 for hunting game, but it is all about where it goes...
Yes. Our european feral hogs (sus scrofa) have a very strong "shield". If you hit them there, a soft .223 bullet might not penetrate enough. But, a soft .223 is good for neck shots because it will rapidly transfer all its energy and cause shock to the CNS (neck/spine). I use a 7x57 and go for the heart...
