    Finally conected with this goat we saw Sat AM with a bunch of non typ trash points,actually has a small cutter going out the BACK of his left horn, this morning at first light,the 8 mag may be considered overkill for goats but DRT doesnt even begin to describe the results you get when you send a Barnes 180 TSX through the front shoulder at 700+(719 yards) :yes:

    Nice shooting. Dead is dead. Don't worry about overkill, people use 338 Edge/Lapua on goats at closer ranges.

    There is no such thing as overkill. How dead can you kill something. I must have killed my antelope last year deader than he!! at 813 yards with my 338-378 shooting the 225 accubond 3540 fps. I like the 8mm rem mag and I don't think you killed the antelope to dead. I see that sticker in the back. Really nice goat with lots of charachter. Congratulations and keep up the good work with the 8 mm mag. That rifle also does well on prairie dogs but you got to use a good strong bullet.
