Default .223 re-visited

I'll say one more thing ,then get off the soap box .I know I'll catch hell ...Ive got big shoulders, but I wish people would realize that the" REAL'' purpose of the .223 /5.56 was to ''WOUND'' not '' KILL'' .I also understand that there are different bullet designs ,weights ,etc ....blah ,blah and most everyone in this forum has a super secret sniper /operator card in their wallets or encrypted in a personal bio- chip . Facts are facts .the .223 /5.56 has neither the sectional density or knock down to be a "KILLER" it is what it is a very thorough ''WOUNDER''.

It is strictly an extermination purpose, we farm in southern TX and annually have about 20 to 40 acres destroyed by them. In a little over a year we have confirmed 100 kills and dont know how many others we have wounded using AR 15s. I was only wondering if people had experience using something different that had a greater effect on pigs
