Difference between Go the limit and Reach the limit

go the limit(also: go to the limit)

1. do as much as possible:

  • We know that Quiller will go the limit to ensure the success of his mission.

2. go beyond what is reasonable:

  • I am taking my time about it and do not go the limit. Do not let them tell you that I am foolish or hare-brained.

reach the limit—reach the extreme point:

  • I think those shares have reached the limit, they are not likely to rise higher than they are now.
