Cowboy 6.8mm SPC as a hunting caliber?

Hey Everyone,
I've been looking over the internet and I'm starting to notice more rifles being chambered in the 6.8mm SPC. What do you all think of this as a hunting round? It seems that generally speaking most people think that a 223 is too small but many people use it to great success, but will the 6.8mm SPC be considered too small still? Remington has 4 kinds of ammo at 115grs and a 308 is between 125grs and 180grs with some exceptions.
The two seem pretty close so that's why I wanted to ask everyone here what they thought.
