Asking what .223 cartridge is best for hogs is like asking what size pellet gun is best for deer hunting. Will a .223 kill a hog? yes. Is it more likely to just wound the animal? Absolutely.

If you are going to hog hunt, then use a caliber that will bring a clean and humane kill. Hogs may be a nuicance and very ugly, but that doesn't mean you can leave your hunter ethics at the door.

I use wolf or tulia 55 grain fmj, never have lost one, most of my shots are 100 yrds or less, furtherest I have had one go is about 75 yrds, most no more than 30 yrds if not drt,

In my opinion fmj is better than soft point on hogs just because of penetration.

some people on here will argue with hunting with anything under a 300 win mag, dont understand why.. that being said, dont shoot one in the back leg with a .223 and expect it to drop

You bring up a good point. Too many shoot to wound instead of shoot to kill

I will never leave hunter ethics at the door, and you are acting ignorant for ever accusing anyone on this forum for doing that. Having said that...I have helped friends track bow-shot deer for hundreds of yards, over several hours of time, gone back to camp to get some shut eye, woke up before dawn and continued to search for said deer. We have found deer 48 Hrs after they were shot with a bow STILL BREATHING. So why in the world would you feel it necessary to tell me to use a larger caliber on pigs?? I ALWAYS go for the most humane kill on any animal I EVER Shoot. All I asked was what people have had the best luck with .223 in their travels. Also by travels I mean the thousands of hunters that shoot pigs with .223.
