What kind of ranges are you shooting? The .357 might be a little weak for a shot to the vitals on a legitimate wild hog but fine for a head shot( a meat saver as we call it). Their huge shoulder bones, tough skin, and depending on region the possible pine resin from rubbing on trees not to mention scar tissue from mating fights can make penetration an issue. If it's a pen raised high fence hunt you might make it. Otherwise I'd personally opt for a rifle. The smallest I've ever shot a hog with is a .243, and the biggest is what I use now a 30-06. I've also used a slug gun and a 7mm mauser with results. Just my opinion though, I've killed a few in my day.
