I don't know how big the boar are where you are (boar are pretty tough skinned/muscled) or how open an area you would be shooting at them in but I wouldn't want to try to take a big one from the ground in the woods with a .223. 100, 125 Lbs. with a 69 gr. bullet "maybe". Anything bigger give me a tree or the .308. I've seen pig take with HMR .17. But they only weighed about 75 Lbs. and were shot at night over an open field.
