Are pressure cookers good for softening hard bones?

I enjoy making bone broth. But, sometimes after I've cooked bones for a day or two the bones are still hard. I'd like to get the marrow out of those hard bones without resorting to a hammer. Are pressure cookers good for softening hard bones? If so, what's your recipe for softening them, i.e. how much water, how many bones, how much time?

Yes, pressure cooking is faster to soften beef bones, but requires many hours. Rather than cook the stock so long, separate the stock, then soak the bones in a vinegar/water mix and they will soften enough to cream in a Vitamix, or similar blender. Great source of calcium and phosphorous.
