    Not really a suitable way of wording that question But I think I know what ya mean. They are not that big animal. (Antelope) 30-40 kg live weight, for an adult. With a few exceptions. Those heads as far as trophy quality are not too bad at all.
    How big Hillclima, one looks to be around 9 1/2 ish?
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    They aren't very big animals, the one I'm holding on the left is missing it's jaw so makes it look even smaller, and is 9 3/4, the one on the right is 9.5 so good guess there!

    I was using 7mm WSM, which is a bit of an overkill for Chamois but it's what i use on everything.
