My ex father in law used to hunt every year with a .22-250 and got alot of flak from others,but he always came back with dead deer,he loves small fast rounds,but he always takes neck shots with them.

125 grain is plenty big enough as long as it is the proper bullet as stated earlier. A .243 shooting a bullet of that weight is more than adequate but as in any situation shoot placement is critical. The lowest caliber Missouri will allow is a 22 centerfire as long as it is NOT FMJ.., it has to be an expandable bullet. I would hate for the buck of a lifetime to get away after being hit due to lack of firepower. You can kill a deer with about anything but the chances increase with effective hits with larger bullets.

Default 150 vs 125 ?

i am going to assume you are using a .30 cal .....308 or 30.06 as 150 grn is the most common load . This being said . Using big game bullets such as the nosler partition or new barnes tsx , etc going from 150 to 125 would be great ...less recoil ,more speed ,flatter tracjectory at longer ranges provided your specific gun liked a particular load. Most .30 cal's love bullets in the 150 -168 grain . A 125 grain in 30.06 performance should mimic a .270 with the 130 grn . Im of the opinion that the time ,cost ,working up a new load etc is only productive if your getting recoil sensitive or training a newer ,younger shooter .There are also factory managed recoil loads .
