Even a mis place shot with a large caliber is bad a gut shot hog with anything will make it a long ways. And as JE said they like to get even. I do like the faster follow up shot of a small caliber 300 blk or .223. But if I'm heading into the woods stalking a wounded pig or going after a monster boar I do pick up the .458 socom. Haven't found a pig that walks away from that thing. Just a dam heavy ar.
