If your asking about the capability of 5.56 on hogs then please use a larger caliber. And this is coming from a guy who uses 5.56/.223 exclusively for CA big game hunting. Shot placement is key and distance is its limited capability. Ive shot deer at 250 yards but I wouldnt shoot at game any further then 300.

Someone asked about penetration, using Wolf 55g HP will penetrate both shoulders of a deer and complete pass through with no problem but I wouldn't recommend that cartridge for hunting as its expansion is very limited.
