why is it harder to determine experimentally the pka and ka of Hcl?

in class, we experimentally recorded pH vs volume of base added to find the equivalence pt and therefore, pka. a question asks why we didnt experimentally derive a strong base/strong acid (HCl). when i googled HCl's pKa, it is a negative number, so finding it graphically would be difficult. is that why ?
