Removing oil based stain

Anybody know if stain can be removed with just sandpaper? If so, what grit?

It depends on the type of wood but typically it will take a LOT of sanding. Especially if there is a finish over it.

Not enough info to specifically say what grit.

It would help to know more about what you want to remove the stain from and why.
Is there any poly/varnish over the stain? Pics might be helpful.
