    Great caliber. Killed deer and hogs with it. Versatile in grains, so it's good for small to medium size game.

    great gun too, yeah the axis may be entry level but it will shoot with & much better than many more expensive ones. after about 50 rounds down the pipe, this is what i did with my axis in .223 @ 100 yards off a bipod:

    it's safe to say the gun is more accurate than the shooter :D

    Great caliber! I love my .243! It's taken 200lb. Whitetails to coyotes and bobcats!
    But mines a Remy 700...
