my point: its all about shot placement.. not saying you should always use a 223 for hunting game, but it is all about where it goes...
No it's not ALL about shot placement. Sometimes it's possible for a smaller, lighter caliber bullet that expands quickly with moderate penetration to kill much quicker than the exact same shot placement with a more powerful bullet that goes thru and thru and expands little.

Not saying that's what happened in your case----don't have any way of knowing: but it happens sometimes.
