at that range the 185 punched through a decent amount of bone, and stopped just under the skin on the opposite side of the goat.
Well that's a great shot on a target that small because I'm betting they aren't over 3' tall with a "kill zone" of only about ten inches top to bottom and 18 left to right and from the vid, it sure looked like a shot straight through both shoulders and the spine.
Feral goats and sheep are pretty tough game to even get on at shorter ranges so you probably had the right idea all the way around.
