Dear Annabelle -

I figure you to be something of an expert in this area, so here's my dilemna:

Over the last year and a half I have worked up several very accurate loads for my Marlin .45-70 and .375, but am undecided as to which would be best for goat getting. Which of the following would you recommend, and why?

.375Win
220g Hornady JFP @ 2230fps

.45-70
300g Hardcast @ 1566fps
350g Hardcast @ 1097fps
350g North Fork Bonded @ 2183fps
405g Remington JSP @ 1982fps
460g Hardcast @ 1812fps


What ranges can I expect to take shots at -- 10 feet, 15 feet or 25 feet?

Do female goats taste better than their male counterparts?

One last question: which shot placement do you think is best -- behind the shoulder, behind the ear, or just "behind"?

Geez Coyote-This subject has been beat to death.We all no the best bullet for Goats is the Remington 405 grain at 1982 fps.Harmless Harmless and Harmless.I'm sure that's what Anna would want for her counterparts.

Bubba said that females taste much better and he prefurs behind the ear.

Hope I helped untill Anna gets here and "straightens" us all out. :lol:

Got yer Goat yet?

Hello Riflepersons: Female and male "counterparts" are to be removed and thrown away! As for shot placement it's the same as with anything. THS :lol: BestLever

I'm sure if Anna were to respond, she'd tell you that the best shot placement would be about two feet above the goat!
As for which tastes better, I'd have to say who'd eat them?
