Nice shot. That's the best place to put it with that .223.  Nice job on the video too!

Friend in Texas shoots them in the ear, too.  He said if you shoot them anywhere else, they run off into the brush and die, but you'll never find them, cuz the brush is so thick.

Thanks everyone, yes they can be hard to find in the thick stuff for sure... I like to shoot em in the ear or between the eyes with the AR
With a bow thats a different story,  I like to shoot them in front of the shoulder with an arrow

Poor widdle piggy - didn't feel a thing, dead before gravity took over.  You mentioned V-max in your video - do those things hold together well enough to put one down with a headbone shot between the eyes?  I'd be thinking maybe a soft point would be a safer bet?  (bear in mind I've never hunted a wild pig)

I shoot them between the eyes with the hornady vmax and never had a problem, drops em in their tracks.. Soft points and hollow points also do the job
