If you shoot em in the arse a 300 aint enough. Should be plenty provided you put it in a good spot.

Should be, IF the shot placement is good. Small bucks/does no problem, but bucks can be extremely tough and bleed very little typically. I seen more than a few big axis buck approach 300lbs.

It depends on your property. I have shot big axis bucks right through the heart, and STILL have them run over a 100-150 yards before falling over dead.

I have taken 6 or 7 axis bucks with my 25-06 and haven't lost one yet - although 2 of them required a second shot to pin the animal. Most of mine have been taken with my .308 - that being said, I had one hop a fence after a 60 yard sprint (not the best shot admittedly, but still a kill). So on that property, where I need to drop them QUICKLY and RIGHT THERE, I have been known to carry my .375 H&H

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

Never shot an Axis with it but I have plenty of whitetails that know what the round can do.

Yes, if the bullet is placed in the vitals. No, if it is not and it's a big mature Axis buck.

So don't rush the shot. Make sure you have a good rest. up

My dad ran 80g softpoints on south Texas deer, it was a light switch.
He would switch to 117s to go kill Elk
