I know the .270 will take down deer and bear. Not sure about wild boar
It will do just fine for hogs. Hogs are extremely overated as far as being difficult to kill. Any rifle caliber suitable for whitetail will kill hogs. We have a plague of them on our land. I have killed them with every type of firearm I own. Even shot them in the head with a 22 on multiple occasions. I'd stay away from ballistic tip bullets but then I don't like them for deer either.

you don't need a premium bullet for any of the game mentioned, just a mid weight cup core bullet where it needs to be,
Agreed.
