Yes hogs are tough! Had a friend shoot one point blank and saw the skull cap blow off. We couldn't find it later.
Have shot many with my Rem. 742 in '06 cal. The trick is to put 2 shots in the boiler room from a rear angle.
The front 'shield' on a hog is quite strong and will deflect a bullet.
Nasty animals, and not worth eating over 80 #lbs. IMO.
