    As for the semi hornet, I heard a story years ago from an old shooter (mind you historically some of his stories were quite how should we say, embellished).
    He was in the army and one of the armourers for his last qualification supposedly converted a 30 m1 carbine to 22 hornet.
    It was apparently quite a nifty little piece. Cannot confirm the truth but if it shot alright and used like everyone has said for closer range work it would've been quite the tool. quite a few years before the mini 14.

    An old culler mate of mine used to use a Hornet on Tahr, so goats should be no problem....

    If you can source some Norma or other European .22 Hornet ammo the bullets are tougher than American made ones they use the .22 Hornet on Roe deer,
    I used Sako factory on goats years ago killed better than any reloads with American projectiles I tried.
