Default .223 for Hogs?

How do yall think a .223 would be for hogs. I was thinkin about the Remington Model 7615 Ranch Carbine because when I hunt Im usually gettin in and out of a truck a lot. I already have a Savage Model 10 .243, just want somethin smaller and cheaper ammo

That's what I use. I load it up with 55 gr. Gamekings and it kills them dead.
