The methods in this guide may involve considerable risk, including (but not limited to): loss of money/items, unstable prices, and/or slow GE resale.
Reason: Horns have very unstable prices/supply and the dust sells slowly.

Goat horn dust is an ingredient in the Combat potion and is the tertiary ingredient in infusing Smoke devil pouches. It is often profitable to crush the horns and sell them on the Grand Exchange. Like all methods involving large amounts of buying and selling, it is recommended to test the market first to make sure crushing the horns is profitable. Note that the Desert goat horn will often buy at under market price and the dust will occasionally sell at over market, so actual profits may be higher.

28 horns can be crushed per inventory, and each inventory can take from 16.8 to 20 seconds. Desert goat horns are crushed at 0.6 seconds per horn, so a maximum of around 5,000 horn can be ground per hour. Your rates may vary.

Please note that Desert goat horns have a buying limit of 10,000 every four hours.
