I agree with you on the 223 for hogs, It will work but just barely and in a pinch will get you in

Where I am my friends hunt them the distance is almost always short, inside 80yds, and we use .30cal and .223 equally effectively.
The .30's are 7.62x39 in SKS's and a Saiga, the .223's in AR's.
We've also used .17HMR but it's always a head shot with those, and it works just fine. Just want to say we did not take the .17's hog hunting, the hogs just showed up while we were hunting smaller game.
