.357 Magnum Cartridges For Boar Question

Alright, this isn't the normal question of whether or not the .357 is adequate for feral hogs. I know that the popular consensus is that it is marginal. And normally, I carry a .44 for backup. However, it does get kinda uncomfortable on the hip after walking all day, and my friend that goes with me ONLY has a .357 for backup. So, I was looking at some cartridges for both of us to use (if I do decide to take one of my .357s out).

Right now, his .357 is loaded with Remington 125 grain hollow points....which is feel is not the best thing he could be using in the gun. I am looking for something more along the lines of these three cartridges:

Winchester 180 Grain Partition Gold
Grizzly 180 Grain Cast Performance Lead Wide Flat Nose Gas Checked (never heard of this brand but they have them on
Buffalo Bore 180 Grain Lead Flat Nose Gas Checked

Which of these (or any others) would you guys recommend?
Too close for missiles, I'm switching to guns.
