My grandfather back in the 50's use a 22 short in his bolt action J.C. Higgins. One shot in the head and then stuck him in the neck with a big knife to bleed him out then hooked the singletree to his back legs and hoisted him up to drain the blood. Then the fun started. Of course this was in a squeeze shoot in a fenced lot.

Two words: Shot Placement

175lbs isn't that big. I bet there are a lot of insurgents who weighed that much that wish they hadn't been shot with a .223

hogg loads

a wild large hogg side is tough as bark from a ole hickory tree, and even tougher to skin down,so a 22 up close in the head, will put there lights out,so just wonder what a 223 will do!!
