Bad thing about boring oversize is that then you would need to bore all the other holes too if you want to move the axle width around. I know this does not happen very often, but I would not bore oversize just in case I ever wanted to change the width.
I would apply a little weld and then free hand shape back into a round shape with a carbide burr in either an air grinder of better yet one of those $25 electric ones from Harbor Freight works excellent. 6013 rod grinds almost like virgin steel if you use a stick welder so it is very easy to shape with handheld power tools. A wire feeder would also work well for this job but will be a tad harder to shape
FWIW: I probably use my welders for repairing oblong, worn, or sloppy holes as compared to any other single purpose. That an a cheapo electric die grinder from Harbor freight and a quality carbide burr and in business. (Hint: Use the biggest diameter carbide burr that you can fit in the hole. You will have more control and accuracy with a bigger diameter over a tiny diameter carbide burr. Small diameter prone to divoting where bigger diameter leaves smooth contours).
